Officers Make Arrest After Wordsley Armed Robbery

Two men are in police custody after an armed robbery in Wordsley last night.

The masked men burst into One Stop on Swan Lane just before 10pm and, while one kept watch at the door, the other brandished a large kitchen knife and demanded cash and vodka. They fled on foot with £80 and two bottles. 

CCTV enquiries identified one of the offenders who had been in the store some days before wearing the same clothing. He was arrested from his home address less than an hour later. 

The second offender was identified from a tattoo on his hand and, in the early hours of this morning, officers arrested him from his home address after a short footchase as he tried to escape wearing just his boxer shorts! 

The two bottles of vodka and clothing matching that seen in the CCTV were also recovered from the address. The local men, both aged 22, will be questioned later today.
