30 July, 2014

Two men have been arrested following an armed robbery at a filling station in the West Midlands

Police were called to the Esso forecourt on Willenhall’s Wolverhampton Road West just before 4.30am on Saturday 26 July following a 999 call from staff reporting a knife point raid.

Officers raced to the scene and locked down the area as a description was quickly circulated.

Two local men aged 26 and 34 were stopped and arrested on nearby Clarkes Road on suspicion of robbery. Cigarettes and a quantity of cash were recovered by officers.

Detective constable Gerry Maley, from Force CID, said: “Fortunately no one was injured during the raid but the male member of staff who was working at the time was left badly shaken.”
