A Warwickshire pub landlady suffered a suspected fractured arm when she used golf clubs to try to fight off crowbarwielding raiders.
Four masked men walked into the Rose & Crown, House High Street, Wolston, at 12.35am yesterday and shouted threats at landlord Dylan Thomas and three customers.
Warwickshire Police said the offenders ordered the landlord to open the tills. When told they were empty, one of the raiders used a crowbar to force a till.
A force spokeswoman said landlady Beth Thomas heard what was happening and came into the bar area with two golf clubs.
She injured one of the offenders with a club but was then hit on the arm with a crowbar, causing a suspected fracture.
A customer hit by a crowbar suffered a cut above the eye.
One of offenders threw a crowbar at the landlord who was following the gang out of the building, hitting him on the head.
The gang, wearing dark clothing, masks and gloves, made off empty-handed in a blue Subaru Impreza with gold-coloured alloy wheels which was driven off towards Binley Woods.
* In an incident which Warwickshire Police are not linking to the pub raid, up to four men threatened a man with a crowbar when he approached them breaking into the Crossroads Garage, Old Fosse Way, Tredington, on Christmas Day.
The incident happened at 9.45pm when the gang arrived in a Rover Metro stolen from Burford, broke into four cars and stole a Subaru Legacy.
Two men were arrested in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, the following day, interviewed and released on police bail.
