Two men held up the petrol station in Vilafranca, leaving the attendant unconscious, in the early hours of yesterday morning. The woman is now recovering from her injuries in hospital and police are looking for her attackers who are believed to have got away with about 700 euros. The Cepsa petrol station is at the entrance to Vilafranca and it is open 24 hours a day. According to police reports, the woman who was on duty had gone outside to check the levels of petrol at the pumps at about 5am. She was surprised by two men, one of whom hit her on the head, leaving her unconscious. The thieves then went into the offices, stealing bottles of alcohol, cigarettes and about 700 euros in cash, before making their getaway. Minutes later, an off duty policeman happened to stop at the petrol station to get petrol and found the attendant lying unconscious on the ground. He called for help from his mobile phone and the Guardia Civil began their investigations. The woman, whose name has not been released, was taken to hospital, where she is said to be making a full recovery. She had received a hard blow to the head and doctors have been conducting tests to determine the extent of the injury. Sources say that the Guardia Civil believe that the two thieves had planned their robbery in great detail and waited outside the petrol station until the employee left the office, so that she would be more vulnerable. The Palma police are also helping in investigations, working on the possibility that the two delinquents are drug addicts, and may have gone to Son Banya or the red light district to buy drugs after the raid, but so far no arrests have been made. Police said that it had been a brutal attack. The men are believed to have made their getaway in a waiting car.
