09 September, 2015

West Midlands Police have released CCTV images following a robbery at a Solihull petrol station on Thursday 3 September.

The robbery took place at the BP petrol station on High Street, Solihull Lodge, Shirley at 10.50pm.

Two men went into the petrol station and asked the cashier for a packet of paracetamol. When the cashier opened the till, they reached over and grabbed a large amount of money, injuring the cashier’s hand in the process.

One man was described as white, bald headed, clean shaven, with a slim build and aged between 30 and 40. The second man, aged around 30, had a medium build and short dark hair and dark stubble; he was wearing a baseball cap.

The men left the petrol station in a green Subaru Impreza which was believed to have stolen registration plates.

Anyone with any information is urged to call detective sergeant Chris Burt on 101 or Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555111.
