Cumbria police arrest two men after robbery bid

Two masked robbers burst into a shop, demanding cash.

Staff at the Nisa store, in Main Street, Cleator Moor, were said to be “shaken” after the incident, which took place just after 1.30pm today.

No cash was taken but a police spokeswoman said that a mobile phone was stolen.

She added: “Two arrests were made on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery – a 27-year-old man with no fixed address and a 29-year-old man from Cleator Moor.”

The younger man was also arrested on suspicion of breaching a banning order.

The spokeswoman added: “The two men made off from the store without cash.

"No weapons were seen during the incident and no-one suffered any injuries. However, members of staff are understandably shaken by their ordeal.

“Police officers were immediately deployed to the scene to search for the offenders and make local enquiries.”

Officers are appealing for anyone with any information about the incident to call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
