Officers from Warwickshire Police are appealing to the Warwick Gates community for information following a robbery at the Co-Op store located at Cressida Drive, Warwick.

The incident happened just before 6pm on Friday 26 January 2018, when an unknown man entered the store and walked up to the till area.

The man is reported to have threatened staff with a bladed article and demanded the contents of the till, before leaving with an amount of cash.
