Graingers employee tied up during Dorchester robbery

A member of staff at a Dorset food company was tied up during a robbery at the firm's premises.

Two men entered offices at Graingers food wholesalers on the Marabout Industrial Estate in Dorchester on Friday evening.

The female member of staff was threatened, pushed to the ground and tied up before the offenders made off with cash from the store and her purse.

She remained tied up for more than 20 minutes before being found.

Police described it as a "terrifying incident" for the woman.

The offenders are described as white, of skinny build and were both wearing dark tracksuit bottoms and hooded tops. They both had local accents and smelt of cigarette smoke.
