A man has been arrested after a shop worker was threatened with a knife and a basket of items was stolen in Tunstall.
We were called to High Street just after 8pm on Tuesday (8 November).
The victim, a man in his 20s, reported two men entering the store with one of the men pulling out a knife when challenged to pay for a basket of women’s beauty products.
The suspects then left the scene on a white Carrera cycle.
The victim was left shaken but unhurt.
We attended and located one of the suspects as well as the stolen goods.
A 29-year-old man, from Stoke-on-Trent, was arrested on suspicion of robbery.
He remains in police custody while we continue to work to locate the second suspect.
Anyone with any information, relevant CCTV or dashcam footage, should contact us on Facebook, Twitter, or call 101, quoting incident 696 of 8 November.
