Suspect detained following Mansfield knifepoint robbery

Police have arrested a suspect following a knifepoint robbery at a shop.

Officers were called to Westfield Lane, Mansfield, at around 7.30am on Sunday (12 November).

A man wearing a face covering had by that point entered the store in question and produced a knife.

The suspect then threatened a member of staff and forced them to hand over cash from inside the till.

After filling a bag with hundreds of pounds in cash, the suspect then fled from the store in the direction of Devon Drive.

Police attended the scene soon afterwards and located a suspect inside a nearby property later that same day.

A 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of robbery and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place.

Detective Inspector James Oakton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“This would’ve been a very distressing experience for the victim who was just trying to do their job when they were threatened.

“Robbery is an extremely serious offence, especially when it’s coupled with someone carrying this act out while in possession of a weapon.

“This type of behaviour will always be met with a robust response from the police, and in this case we located and arrested a suspect soon afterwards.

“We are still in the process of carrying out inquiries in relation to this incident, so we’d ask anyone with any information that could assist us to get in touch.

“Information can be reported to the police on 101, quoting incident 135 of 12 November 2023, or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
