The NationNARATHIWAT: -- Four gunmen armed with rifles yesterday robbed a convenience store in broad daylight in Narathiwat's Rusoh district and escaped with toothpaste, shampoo and snacks.
The 7-Eleven staff told police that two men, who were dressed in the clothes worn by Muslim women with their faces covered, entered the shop then pulled out AK47 rifles and shotguns. They told the staff not to resist.
One of the two then telephoned a third accomplice who later came into the shop while the fourth guarded the entrance.
The staff said they loaded a basket with goods. They tried to open the till but after failing to do so escaped on two motorcycles parked in front of the shop.
The staffs told police that the suspects made off with only toothpaste, shampoo and some snacks. The entire robbery was recorded on the shop's security cameras and the police are examining the footage to identify the suspects.
Fingerprint and other evidence will be coordinated with Narathiwat police. The suspects took just 12 minutes to rob the store.
