Two men arrested after armed robbery in village south of Lincoln

Two men in their twenties have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery in the village of Cranwell, south of Lincoln.

As reported previously, a man entered a shop on College Road in Cranwell at around 10.40am on October 30 demanding money.

Using what police described as a ‘knife-type weapon’, he forced a female member of staff to hand over money.

She was left extremely shaken after the ordeal.

Police launched a search for the suspect, who was wearing a dark hooded top, tracksuit bottoms and carrying a yellow drawstring bag.

Following the appeal, two men, aged 20 and 28 and from the local area, were both arrested on suspicion of robbery.

Both remain in police custody at the time of writing and will be interviewed in due course.

Anyone who wishes to come forward with additional information should do so by calling 101 and quoting incident number 100 of October 30.
