Bob’s note: This story is from 2011. No idea what it’s being shared again. It’s not current.


This is a nasty one – if anyone has any information, please do come forward and contact Walsall Police or Crimestoppers. It seems that at 7am on Sunday, a pair of thugs robbed the Crash! Bang! Wallop! soft play centre in Lindon Road, Brownhills. The thugs challenged a female member of staff opening up for the day and forced the terrified victim to open the safe. They took a substantial quantity of cash and then ran off towards Brownhills.

This is a despicable attack on a popular local business. Please, please, if you know anything about the people who did this – maybe someone seems to have come into a lot of money since Sunday when they really have no good reason to – please call the police on 0345 113 5000, or Contact them online. You can also call Crimestoppers in confidence.

Crimes like this are rare in Brownhills, thankfully, so if you know anything, please help with the inquiry and let’s keep it that way.
