“A worker got some water and poured a lot on him outside, while they rang the police.

“I then left but he was pacing around outside with his hands in his face. It looked painful.”

Famous Edenene, who lives opposite the convenience store, said: “I was about to drive away from my house when I saw a bike (motorcycle) with two guys on. Their faces were covered by balaclavas.

“There was a man sitting on the floor (outside Today’s Local) and those guys drove to him straight away.
