TWO men donned straw hats and sunglasses in a bid to disguise themselves while carrying out a knife point raid in a Stourbridge petrol station supermarket.

Police have released CCTV footage of the incident to find those responsible for the raid, which took place in the M&S Food section of the BP garage in Hagley Road in Stourbridge.

The pair can be seen to approach the checkouts with pizzas, beer and wine, but instead of paying, one produced a large kitchen knife − with the other revealing a meat cleaver − and demanded cash from the tills.

The men bagged cash, along with the alcohol and food, before making off on foot.

Detective Sergeant Mark Dent, said: “The men act in a very blasé manner collecting items from the shelves and approaching the tills − but as soon as they get to the checkouts both produce knives and demand staff put money in their bag.

“There were several shoppers in the store along with staff but thankfully no-one was injured.

“Anyone who believes it’s OK to brandish knives in public needs to be caught quickly. I’d ask anyone who thinks they recognise the men − or anyone who was in the area at the time and remembers seeing the men − to get in touch."

Police have described both men as white, with local accents and they stuffed cash and items into a navy and white beach type bag.
