Detectives from the Flying Squad are appealing for information and witnesses following a robbery on Monday, 8 December at a Post Office in Brabazon Road, Hounslow.

At 1740hrs two men wearing dark clothing with the hoods of their top pulled tightly around their faces entered the Post Office and threatened and assaulted two female members of staff. One of the men was carrying a knife and during the process of the robbery one of the staff members received a cut to her hand. She did not require medical treatment.

The two men fled the scene via the rear of the Post Office in a direction unknown with a large quantity of cash. It is unknown at this stage whether the two left in a vehicle or fled on foot.

No arrests have been made and enquires continue.

Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who may have any information or saw two men fitting the description running from the rear of the premises.

Anyone with any information should call the Flying Squad on 0208 785 8655 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
