Knifeman Holds Up Coventry Store

A man armed with a knife forced a cashier at a Coventry store to hand over money from the till.

He walked into the Charter Stores in Charter Avenue, Canley, at 6.30am on Sunday and produced a 100inch blade, believed to be a kitchen knife.

The male cashier, who was unhurt but shaken by the incident, handed over 80 from the till and the man fled.

He is white, in his early 20s, 6ft 1in and slim build, with large eyes, a prominent nose. He wore dirty white trainers and a red and white cream tracksuit top with the hood pulled up.

Witnesses should call 024 7653 9030.
