Police are hunting a pair of knifepoint robbers who assaulted two women at a Post Office in Heston.
The men entered the branch in Brabazon Road yesterday (Monday, December 8) at about 5.40pm and threatened and assaulted two female members of staff.
One of the men was carrying a knife and during the robbery one of the employees received a cut to her hand, though she did not require medical treatment.
The men, who were wearing dark clothes, with the hoods of their tops pulled tightly round their faces, fled via the rear of the store with a large quantity of cash. It is not yet known whether they escaped on foot or by car.
Shopkeepers in the road told how Monday's raid was the third in the street in the space of less than three weeks.
No arrests have been made and detectives are keen to speak to anyone with information, especially witnesses who saw two men running from the rear of the premises.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Flying Squad on 020 8785 8655 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
