At around 8.30pm the owner served his last customer, locked up for the evening and went home. He made himself some tea and settled in to watch television for the evening. Shortly before 9pm he heard loud knocks on the front door, but after hearing nothing else, he continued to watch the television. About 30 minutes later he heard a noise coming from the kitchen and as he was walking towards the kitchen he was approached by two masked men. They wrestled him to the ground.
