A cash-in-transit security guard was rushed to hospital after he was attacked and robbed outside a south London supermarket.

Police were called to a Tesco superstore, in Croydon Road, in Elmers End, at 12.02pm on Saturday to reports of a robbery.

On arrival they found the security guard suffering injuries to their face, a police spokesman said.

The robber fled with a stolen cash box, but it was recovered by officers nearby.

One witness told the Standard he was told the security guard was attacked as he transferred cash from the cash point into his van.

A Met spokesman told the Standard it is not yet known how serious his injuries are, but that there is nothing to suggest they are life-threatening or life changing.

He told the Standard: “We were called at 12.02pm to reports of a robbery at Elmers End.

“Nothing indicates firearms were used. A cash box was stolen but recovered nearby by officers.”

No arrests have been made.
