POLICE are investigating after a small grocery store packed with customers at Wyoming, on the state’s Central Coast, was held up by two men armed with sawn-off shotguns last night.
Police say the two gunmen, who had their faces concealed, entered the busy store on the Pacific Highway just after 6pm and threatened a checkout operator into emptying the till.
