A police spokesman said the cashier at the Total garage in High Street was outside the shop on her break at around 12.15am, when a man approached her asking for a cigarette. He grabbed her and was joined by a second man. They demanded her keys which the second man took and entered the shop, whilst the first man stayed with her.
