Cumbria police appeal after man with knife robs shop

A man has been arrested after a knifepoint robbery in a toffee shop.

Police were called to the Toffee Shop, in Brunswick Road, in Penrith last night.

They said a man wearing a grey hoodie and tracksuit bottoms threatened staff with a knife. He is said to be aged between 40 and 50, with facial stubble, and of medium build.

The would-be robber, who struck just before 5pm, fled in the direction of Bluebell Car Park.

Police said a 42-year-old man from Penrith has been arrested.

They want any witnesses, or anyone in the area at the time, to call 101 or Crimsestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who noticed anyone running away from the area or acting suspiciously.
