STAFFORDSHIRE Police are investigating after a security guard was attack and a cash box was stolen at an attack in Burntwood.

Police received a call just before 10am on 6 November reporting a robbery at Morrisons supermarket in Milestone Way, Burntwood.

A G4S security guard was attacked outside the store by a man who stole a cash box and made off with others in a white Ford CMAX car.

The guard was not injured in the attack.

The cash box was discovered close by on a traffic island and had been emptied of its contents.

The Ford CMAX, which was stolen over the weekend from the West Midlands area, was found abandoned in nearby Juniper Close.

The offenders then made off on foot towards Hawthorne Crescent and are believed to have made their escape in a silver or grey vehicle driven by another suspect.

Two men involved in the robbery are described as white, in their late 30s or early 40s and both wearing dark clothing. One of the men also wore a high-visibility vest.

Detective Inspector Steve Chadwick said: “This robbery appears to have been well planned and took place in broad daylight outside a busy supermarket.

“Anyone who witnessed the robbery or has any information that could help with our investigation is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 200 of 6 November. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”
