Guard assaulted in armed robbery at Oadby

Police are trying to trace two men after a security guard was assaulted in an armed raid outside a supermarket in Leicestershire.

The guard, who was delivering money to Sainsbury's at Glen Road in Oadby, was assaulted by two men wearing balaclavas on Friday morning.

The men escaped with a box containing a large quantity of cash. The guard was treated in hospital for minor injuries.

Police said no firearms were used but a weapon was recovered from the scene.

Officers said the offenders drove off in a black Skoda, which was abandoned on Berridge Drive.

It is thought they then got into a grey or silver car.

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
