THE FLYING SQUAD IS APPEALING for information from private hire and taxi trade witnesses who may have seen a shop being robbed at gunpoint in South London.
The two male suspects, one armed with a hand gun, entered the Tower Head Shop on Abbey Street, SE1, threatened staff and took cash from the till.
The suspects fled the shop and got into a gold coloured Honda CRV driven by a third suspect.
The vehicle made off from the scene at speed in the direction of Jamaica Street.
A police spokesman said one was wearing a woollen hat and the other a balaclava. All three suspects were described as white. No injuries were sustained during the robbery and no arrests have yet been made.
Detectives from the Flying Squad are investigating and anyone who witnessed the incident should call the officers on 020 8345 4226 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
