A man’s been hurt during a scuffle with armed robbers in Eastbourne Old Town.
Two men, wearing hoodies held up Low Cost Fuels in High Street on Friday (30 September) at around 7.40pm. One of the robbers was brandishing a knife and demanded money from the cashier. The other attempted to steal cigarettes from behind the counter.
The cashier, a 60-year-old man, grappled with the robber with a knife and was left with a cut to his hand. The second robber was dragged out of the store from behind, by a customer who’d come in whilst the holdup was taking place.
The pair fled with bottles of wine and a quantity of cigarettes.
