Security guard robbed of Willesden supermarket’s takings by three men

Detectives appeal for information following lunchtime theft

The hunt is on to find three men who robbed a security guard of a supermarket’s takings in front of shocked shoppers.

The trio struck as the guard left Sainsbury’s in Walm Lane, Willesden, last Friday (4) at around 1.35pm.

As the guard walked up to his security van with the cash box containing the takings he was approached by two hooded men prompting him to turn back into the store.

He threw the box down one of the aisles but the pair ran after him and retrieved it before fleeing in a getaway car driven by a third accomplice.

The two hooded robbers were white and the driver is described of being black of a light-skinned complexion or mixed race.

All three sped off in an E-class Mercedes car with a 2004 registration down St Paul’s Avenue towards Neasden.
