Just witnessed an armed robbery!

OMG i'd just popped down to my local supermarket to buy some bits and bobs when i was baout 5 meters from going through the front door i notced 3 men dressed all in black faces covered with balaclavas, 2 holdinh macheties and one with a sorn off shot gun

Two girls were standing in front of me and they went round to corner to phne the police so i joned them to avoid the incident.

There was one of the securior vans outside so obvs they were going to get the money going into the cash mashines in the store.

I heard some shouting from inside, then about a minute later they ran past me and got into a car.

Pretty scary stuff, i managed to get the number plate of the car they got into and gave that to the store workers.

First time i've ever seen anything like this

Re: Just witnessed an armed robbery!

Hope no one was hurt. I haven't seen a shotgun or any gun in real life, and imagine i'd probably faint or something if i did see one - especially one used like this.

Anyway, i think you should talk about this a much as possible, just so you can vent and calm down quicker.

Re: Just witnessed an armed robbery!

Yeah its the first time i'd seen a gun. I didn't notice it untill they were running away really, just saw the huge knives when they were going in and thought.

'Get the fuck out of here'

I don't think anyone was hurt at all, just people in shock i would have thought. By the time i left the police were there sorting it out. Hopefully as they have the cars number plate and colour/model they should be able to catsh, although i'm pretty sure they will change cars somewhere.

Re: Just witnessed an armed robbery!

Well done for you having the common sense to firstly stay out of there & also to get the police & number plates etc I think a lot of people would probably freeze & forget about getting all that kind of stuff in the heat of the moment

Re: Just witnessed an armed robbery!

I was robbed at gun point in a barbershop in Harlem a few years back...A hispanic dude came into the shop..asked a question then walked out...it was about 9pm and for some reason I felt uncomfortable...next thing I know...he came back in...and turned the lock behind him and said...everyone to the back...I was so shocked I could not move...and that when he raised the gun and said...move to back and lie on the floor...He led us all to back...we layed on the floor...he started going through our pockets...took all my bling...and the money in pocket...It was the day before Summer Jam...a annual Hot 97 concert so I had just baught a hot new outfit for the concert...he too that too... ...right before he left...I heard a gunshot...and the guy that was right next to me sort of screamed...The guy had shot him...When he left...I was the first one to the phone and called the cops...I could barely stand up...it really hit me when all the police cars screeched to a halt infront of the barber shop and crowed started gathering...To this day...I wont sit in a barber shop in the hood...

Re: Just witnessed an armed robbery!

First I'm shocked, gun violence in Europe? I thought that was an America only problem?

Secondly, I'm glad that you were able to notice what was going on before entering the store and that you had enough wits about you to get the plate number. Good Job!

Re: Just witnessed an armed robbery!

Ironic you would choose that approach, when you were against the notion earlier. And didn't he say it was the first time it happened to him?

These things keep happening to me? Its the first time in my life ive witnessed a crime.

I was so annoyed that i didn't have my mobile phone with me. One of the few times i've left my house without it. I could have phoned the police straight away gave them the number plate and said go get them.

The car was probably stolen BUT with all the CCTV cameras the guys could have been caught.

I thought i'd been very calm, my heart was going quicker but i felt calm and collected.

Hope the guys get caught now.
