ARMED ROBBERY in Swaythling

One Stop near Monte held up by spotty bandit.

The shop is just downhill from Monte halls

Last night the One Stop convenience shop on Portswood Road, Swaythling, was robbed by a man claiming to have a gun.

The incident occurred just before 8PM, with police at the scene soon after. The hooded robber escaped with cash from the tills and was seen running away in the direction of B&Q.

It is not yet clear whether the man, described as “pimply”, was actually carrying a gun at all.
