A SHOPKEEPER was assaulted and robbed during a terrifying incident in Dudley.
The robbery took place at the Mini Market in Priory Road, around 9.45pm on Thursday, April 26.

The offenders made off in a car, thought to be a red Volvo, with the money.

He was wearing a red item, thought to be a t-shirt, underneath the top and had dark trousers with white stripe down the side.
