Surrey petrol station worker attacked in robbery

A worker at a Surrey petrol station was attacked and then forced into a toilet during a robbery.

Sometime between 22:15 BST and 23:00 BST on Wednesday, two men entered the forecourt shop of the Shell Garage in Aldershot Road, Guildford.

They grabbed the member of staff, hit him and forced him into the toilet where his mobile phone was taken.

When the robbers had left, the victim discovered lottery scratch cards, cash and cigarettes had been stolen.

'Terrifying experience'

The worker suffered cuts and bruising during the robbery.

Surrey Police has described the suspects as two black men.

One of them had gone into the petrol station prior to the robbery and bought some car oil.

He is described as about 6ft tall, aged between 30 and 35 years old with a bald head and short facial stubble.

He had a silver stud in one ear and was wearing a hooded top.

The other man is described as 5ft 2in tall with short black hair and bloodshot eyes.

Det Con Mike Taylor said: "This was a terrifying experience for the victim who was carrying out his everyday work duties when he was subjected to this ordeal."
