A second suspect remained nearby the shop while the robbery has taken place.

Officers have reviewed CCTV footage and both men, aged 55 and 30, have been arrested at an address.

On attendance, a third man has also been arrested for drug offences after they found him in possession of cannabis and a quantity of cash.

Detective Sergeant Andrea Brown said: “This was a nasty and distressing incident. A man has entered the store and has used force to get behind the counter and steal cash from the till.

“We acted quickly to locate the offenders and made two arrests. No one should have to go to work and experience this type of incident.”
