Co-op held up by robber armed with knife
4:30pm Tuesday 13th November 2012 in Local News
A ROBBER held up a Co-op store on Canvey last night...but made off with less than £100.
The crook marched up to the till at the store in Meppel Avenue when a staff member saw a knife in his pocket.
He demanded cash but never brandished the knife.
He then made off at about 4.30pm on Monday with a two figure sum of cash.
He was described as aged 20 to 30, stocky, and about six feet tall.
Anyone with information should call police at Canvey on 101.
