Arrest over knife robbery

TWO teenagers have been robbed at knifepoint in Long Eaton.

In the incident at around 10.15pm on Sunday, four friends aged 15 and 16 were walking along an alleyway that leads on to West Park when they were approached by two older youths, who assaulted three of the group.

The robbers, wearing dark clothes, stole a bag and a mobile phone from the group before running off. The friends went to the Box Office bar in Market Place, where staff called police.

Then at 4.15am on Monday morning officers received a call that two men were breaking into Holland & Barratt.

A 17-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and attempted burglary. He has been released on bail.
