A gang attacked a security guard and stole cash in a daylight robbery at a post office in Liverpool.
The security guard was left with an injury to his face after the lunchtime assault in Childwall.
Shocked neighbours told how they heard screaming as the gang made off with a cashbox.
Police were called to Dunbabin Road after receiving reports four men, who all had their faces covered, had assaulted a security guard.
The gang, which targeted the guard at around 12.15pm yesterday, then made off with a cashbox in a blue BMW.
A spokesman for Merseyside Police confirmed the security guard had received “a minor facial injury” and that a blue BMW was later discovered abandoned on nearby Childwall Lane.
