At 5.37am three men who had their faces covered forced their way into the One Stop store on Bournemouth Road and pushed a female staff member to the floor. They did not threaten anyone and left when an alarm was activated. Nothing was taken and no-one was hurt. The men were last seen heading towards Chalvington Road
All three men were wearing dark clothing, including gloves, and had hoods up which covered their faces. One of the three men was carrying a black and grey rucksack.
Anyone who may have seen the men in the area should contact DC Andrew Spooner on 101 quoting 44150089008
