Officers investigating reports of a burglary in Sway have arrested a man in connection.
The incident occurred at around 1.10pm on Tuesday 16 March at a Co-Operative store on Station Road, Sway.
A man entered the store and proceeded to place a number of items into a bag – namely bottles of alcohol – and proceeded to a self-serve check out. Staff members in the store challenged the man as he attempted to leave the store without paying for a number of those items. In doing so, a confrontation occurred and the staff members were threatened with violence as they attempted to stop him from leaving the store.
The man then walked out the store.
A 23-year-old man from Sway was subsequently arrested on suspicion of one count of assault, one count of robbery and one count of causing criminal damage.
