DETECTIVES are investigating a robbery at a gastropub in Hatton in the early hours of Sunday morning.

At around 5.50am police received a report that two men and a woman, all wearing balaclavas and thought to be armed with an axe and knives, burst into The Hatton Arms on the Birmingham Road.

They threatened staff and assaulted one of them before stealing cash from a safe.

DS Cindy Stephenson said: “The staff were understandably very shaken by this crime but thankfully none of them were seriously injured.

“As the community would expect a full investigation is underway and we are following a number of lines of enquiry. We are dedicated to ensure we find those responsible and bring them to justice.

“As always, information from the public can make a big difference in helping detect crime and I would ask anyone who was in the Birmingham Road area this morning that saw or heard anything suspicious to call us on 101, quoting incident number 93 of August 6.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
