POLICE ARE investigating a robbery of two members of staff at a Leeds supermarket.

The victims, a 57-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man, were attacked in the car park of Asda, in Killingbeck Drive, after finishing their shifts at the site’s petrol station on Friday, last week at 8.50pm.

They were near the McDonald’s restaurant when a silver estate car pulled up and two men got out and threatened the victims and demanded money. One of the men then grabbed a bag from the woman causing her to fall to the ground.

One of the men was described as white, about 5ft 8ins tall, and skinny. The other was said to be “white, between 5ft 10ins and 6ft tall, skinny, with a big nose.”

Both were wearing dark clothing and hats.

PC Rob Kennerley, of Leeds District Neighbourhood Crime Team, said: “The area was very busy with shoppers at the time and we would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident. We’re particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw the make and model of vehicle involved or the registration.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC 3896 Kennerley at Stainbeck Police Station on 0113 241 3452 or via 101 quoting crime number 13160011071
