TWO shop workers needed hospital treatment after being sprayed in the face with a noxious substance during a terrifying robbery.
The two intruders raided Booze Barn in Swindon Road, Mexborough, and made off with personal belongings from their two victims, both men aged 50 and 59.
One of the workers was outside when he was approached by the two young men who assaulted him and then sprayed a substance in his face.
The robbers went inside and sprayed the other man in the face with the same substance.
The unknown substance used left both victims needing hospital treatment for irritation to their eyes.
