A WOMAN shop worker has been injured in a robbery at Bampton Post Office today.

Two men went into the post office in Bridge Street at about 9.30am and demanded money.

They threatened a woman working in the post office and then  hit her, said Detective Sergeant Alun Watkins tonight.

The pair grabbed some cash and then fled towards High Street in the direction of Buckland Road and Aston Road.

Det Sgt Watkins said: “The woman who was working in the shop at the time was hit in the face by the offenders and is currently receiving treatment for her injuries at the John Radcliffe Hospital. She has been left very shaken by what happened.

“We believe that the robbers might have driven to the post office in an old-style Ford Fiesta and I am keen to hear from anyone who might have seen this car in the area, before or after the robbery happened.

“I would also like to appeal to anyone who was in the area and who has not yet spoken to us, to contact police immediately.”

The men are described as white, but dark skinned, possibly European and wearing jeans and casual clothes and they are aged in their 20s to 30s.

police have not released how much money was stolen.

Anyone with any information about this incident should contact Det Sgt Watkins on 101 or Crimestoppes on 0800 555111.
