Re: A “brave” shopkeeper carrying a wooden stick chased a gun-toting masked robber out of his store.<br />
Jayendra Patel was alone in his shop in Maesteg when Rhys Randall burst in demanding money and brandishing what appeared to be a handgun.<br />
Randall, Rhys Jervis and Courtney Donaldson were sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court on Wednesday for conspiracy to commit robbery.<br />
Speaking after the hearing, South Wales Police Detective Constable Gillon Neal, who oversaw the investigation, said: “This was a cowardly and brazen attempt to rob a hardworking and well-respected local shop owner.”<br />
The court heard the incident occurred at 7.30pm on Tuesday, February 16, last year at M&V Store in Victoria Street in Maesteg.<br />
Prosecutor Andrew Davies said Jervis entered the shop first to “scope out” the premises, establishing that shopkeeper Mr Patel was alone.<br />
Randall then entered with his hood pulled over his face and pointed a black handgun in the victim’s face, demanding: “Give me the money.”
