Raiders hit county security van
POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a security van was targeted by criminals in Malvern today.
At around 12.10pm, a van was visiting Morrisons on Roman Way when a guard was pushed from behind and the cash box he was carrying was stolen.
The main offender was white, around 6ft 2ins tall, stocky and wearing dark clothing.
He was accompanied by as many as three other men who were sitting in a waiting car, a dark-grey Peugeot 307. All of the men are thought to be in their 30s and one was wearing a bright orange jacket and had light-coloured hair.
Detective Inspector Richard Rees of south Worcestershire CID said: "Thankfully it appears no weapons or serious violence were used in this robbery. However, it is totally unacceptable for security workers to be targeted in this way and we are mobilising a lot resources to find the offenders and their vehicle.
"If anyone has seen a dark grey Peugeot 307 or similar driving away from Malvern, possibly at speed or erratically, then please contact West Mercia Police straight away.
"Also, if anyone has seen a group of men matching the description, please call us. We need to know about any sightings before and after the robbery so we can trace their movements."
West Mercia Police can be contacted via the non-emergency police number 101 or information can be passed on anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
