A MAN has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a Teesside store.
The robbery took place at around 4.35pm on Sunday, August 18 when a masked man entered the Londis store on Vulcan Way, Thornaby, and threatened staff with a knife.
The suspect grabbed the till and ran out, but left the cash drawer.
Police found the till dumped on the nearby Thornaby estate after being alerted by shopkeeper Baljinder Singh, who had pressed the panic button after being confronted by the robber.
The man was dressed in black and wore a balaclava.
A 31-year-old man was arrested by Cleveland Police on suspicion of robbery and remained in custody on Friday morning.
