 "This is a rare occurrence in the area and it is hoped that people using the pub that evening - or were in the area - may be able to identify the suspects. It is not known if they are local or if they were actually patrons of The Fox that evening. Of particular interest to us is if anyone saw two men running from the direction of The Fox pub in Prospect Lane at that time of the evening."
