Korat Convenience Store: A lone gunman robbed a Mini Big C shop in Nakhon Ratchasima’s Muang district of Bt6,000 early on Thursday, police said.

Muang Nakhon Ratchasima police were alerted to the robbery, on Sueb Siri Tawan Daeng road, at 5.30am.

Employee Kachen Yimthanom, 23, told police there were only two staff on duty at the time of the robbery.
