Arrests following knifepoint robbery

First published in North Wilts news

TWO men have been arrested following a robbery on Bank Holiday Monday.

Wiltshire Police say they are keeping an open mind about whether the incident at a newsagents in Chippenham is linked to two similar robberies in Corsham.

At about 4.50pm staff at the shop in Redlands were faced with a man wielding a knife who demanded cash from the till.

He got away with around £250. Two men on a motorbike were seen passing the shop shortly afterwards.

An 18-year-old of no fixed abode and a man of 19 from Devizes were later arrested and bailed for further inquiries.
