Shopkeeper injured during robbery in Kingsbury
A shopkeeper in Kingsbury was left with head injuries after he was attacked by a robber on Monday evening.
The 53-year-old was alone in SNB News in Hay Lane at 7.25pm when a man walked up to the counter and struck him across the head with a weapon causing two injuries.
The perpetrator then managed to get the till open and began helping himself to its contents but the victim shut the till, trapping the suspect’s fingers.
The robber, who managed to escape with some money, is described as a black male, about 16 to 20 years old and around 5ft 10ins tall.
He was wearing blue jeans, dark trainers, a dark, hooded shiny puffer jacket and a grey hooded top.
Police and the ambulance service were called to the scene and the victim was taken to hospital for treatment.
PC Louise Whittaker from the Priority Crime Unit said: “This is an unprovoked attack on the shopkeeper who was working alone.
“He has sustained nasty injuries as a result.”
