TWO hooded men have made off with cash from a village pub safe after assaulting a member of staff.

The offenders threatened a male member of staff outside of The Crown in Aston End at about 11.30pm on Tuesday after the pub was closed.

The victim was assaulted and suffered an injury to his foot before the two men took money from a safe.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to the robbery at the pub in Long Lane.

Both men are described as white, wearing black or dark clothing and hoods covering their faces.
