Axe-wielding gunman attacks landlord’s wife
Oct 23 2008 by Andrew Hirst, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
A MASKED axe-wielding gunman stole cash from a landlord’s wife after ambushing her in a pub car park.
Now police believe the robber was hanging around near the Armytage Arms on High Moor Lane in Clifton for up to an hour before he struck.
The victim – a woman in her 40s – had just got into her car when the gunman struck at 11.45am on Monday.
He smashed the driver's window with an axe before brandishing the gun and grabbing the bag of cash.
The gunman, who was wearing a bala-clava, escaped in an older version of a dark, soft-top Renault Megane or Saab.
