TWO MASKED raiders threatened shop staff with a knife and assaulted two people during an attempted robbery in Tile Hill Lane, Coventry.

It happened at the Costcutter around 7.45pm on Saturday.

The men, who were also wearing gloves and dark clothing, burst into the store and demanded cash before being forced to flee empty-handed.

Det Sgt Tom Parker from West Midlands Police’s CID, said: “We are urging anyone who saw anything suspicious, who may have dash cam footage of anyone involved or who has any information that could help us, to get in touch.”

Police have also appealed for anyone who was driving along Tile Hill Lane just before 8pm to get in touch if they saw anything.

Police can be contacted on 101 or at west-midlands.police.uk via live chat.
