Armed gang who pistol-whipped Post Office cashiers guilty of raid | youth gun, gang and knife violence | Scoop.it
A gang of gun-toting robbers who pistol-whipped Post Office workers before leading police on a foot chase through the streets of south London are facing jail. The Old Bailey heard how two of the men leapt over the counter at the Croydon High Street branch on May 26 and stuffed £15,000 worth of banknotes into a bag while an accomplice blockaded the door, trapping terrified customers inside. One, Gary Katabarwa, brandished a loaded gun at staff and smacked two of them in the head with it, leaving them needing hospital treatment.
