A convenience store has been robbed for the second time in a week in Moldgreen.
The latest incident happened at around 6.40am today (Wednesday) at the One Stop Shop on Broad Lane when a shopworker was confronted by a man who threatened her with a knife.
He made demands for her to open the safe and till.
She handed over a small amount of cash and tobacco items.
