Man arrested over afternoon robbery at Sway Co-op
A MAN has been arrested after a robbery at a Sway Co-op yesterday afternoon.
At about 1.10pm on Tuesday, a man entered the store on Station Road and placed several bottles of alcohol into a bag before going to the shop’s self-serve checkout.
He was challenged by Co-op staff after trying to leave without paying for some of the items. The staff were then threatened with violence and the man left the store, a spokesperson from Hampshire police said.
A 23-year-old man from Sway has now been arrested on suspicion of assault, robbery and causing criminal damage.
He remains in custody.
