Two men made off with cash and jewellery after threatening staff at a Rubery jeweller’s shop on Saturday (3rd May), West Mercia Police confirmed.
The pair entered Collyers in New Road, Rubery just before 5pm as the two female members of staff were preparing to leave. One man was carrying a claw hammer and one of the female shop assistants was pushed to the floor.
The offenders took cash and jewellery from a safe and made off on foot towards Callowbridge Road.
