The chilling threats were aimed at terrified shop owner as he stood behind the counter of Kings Road Stores.
The men, one brandishing a gun and the other a knife, then attempted to smash their way into the till as the shop owner reached for the emergency button.
The attempted robbery happened just after 5.30pm on Tuesday 19Th August 2008. The bungled robbery was the work of two local brothers! They were later apprehended and recently appeared at Canterbury magistrates court, where one was jailed for five years and his brother was sentenced to four years youth custody.
