Armed Robbers in M&S Heist
Police arrest gunmen after High Speed Chase
Late night shoppers in Marks and Spencers on the High Road were confronted by armed robbers last Friday.
Two men in white hooded overalls and surgical masks armed with guns and knives robbed the store at about 8pm. They threatened staff with a shotgun, demanding that they hand over the till takings.
The men fled
from the back of the store towards Chiswick Common Road where a white
van was waiting as a getaway vehicle. Officers from Ealing Borough gave
chase. The suspects eventually tried to escape on foot after the vehicle
was in collision with two other vehicles.
