A shopkeepr has told of the terrifying moment a
customer pulled a seven inch knife on him demanding he hand over cash.
But instead of panicking, Manmohan Heer grabbed a hockey stick and fought off the would-be robber from the Lifestyle Express shop on Nottingham Road.
He told the Advertiser: “He had his hood up and a scarf over his face and then he pulled out this massive bread knife and said something like ‘give me the cash’. I laughed to start with because I thought he was joking.
