Shop worker hurt in raid on Co-op store in Faversham Road, Seasalter

A shop worker was hurt during a terrifying robbery on a Co-op store in Whitstable last night.

The woman suffered a head injury after she was pushed during the raid at the shop in Faversham Road, Seasalter, at 8.25pm.

It is thought there were at least two suspects and they may have been armed, but they had fled by the time police arrived.

The injured woman needed treatment from ambulance crews called to the scene.

Police spokesman Andy Saunders said late last night: "Police were called at 8.25pm to reports of a robbery at the Co-op store in Faversham Road, Seasalter.

"Officers are currently at the scene and enquiries are on-going to find the offenders.

"Secamb are treating a member of staff who is believed to have been pushed during the robbery and who suffered a head injury."

The raid was the latest to blight Co-op stores in the area after thieves smashed their way into stores in Herne Bay and Sturry in July and fled with cigarettes.

The same Herne Bay store in Sea Street was also targeted twice in October and November last year.

No one has been arrested in connection with the latest robbery.
