A security guard was attacked by two thugs outside a Tesco Express as they stole a cash box this afternoon.
The pair of crooks approached the cash-in-transit officer outside the store on Finch Road, Dovecot1 , and grabbed the security box he was carrying. Police descended on the scene at 3.55pm and found the guard had injured his hand.
Officers believe three men, who were wearing dark colouring and had their faces covered, left the scene in a different dark coloured car. A resident on Finch Lane said: I was in my garden when the police arrived .
I had noticed a lot of people standing around but the shops are always busy at this time so I hadn t noticed anything was wrong until then.
Very brazen at that time of the day, loads of people would have saw them. A shop owner on Finch Road said that he heard the incident happen from inside his store.

He told the ECHO: I could hear shouting but by the time I got outside the car had sped down the road.
Loads of people were about at the time so we all saw the car.
People were over at the security guard checking he was ok but he didn t seem too badly injured.
I told the police when they were here that something needs to be done about the area.
There s trouble round here all the time and I don t like leaving my wife here alone in case something like this happens. A spokesman for the force said: Officers are currently at the scene of a cash-in-transit robbery in Dovecot.
