A REDNAL man has been arrested on suspicion of robbery following an incident at a cashpoint in Rubery yesterday.

The victim, a man in his 60s, withdrew cash and was then threatened by another man who was armed with a knife.

A quantity of cash was stolen before the man left in the direction of St Chads.

The victim was uninjured but was shaken up by the incident.

West Mercia Police launched a CCTV appeal yesterday in a bid to catch the culprit.

Officers believe the incident may be linked to a further robbery, which took place at the Late Night Pharmacy on New Road around 11.20pm on the same day.

A man entered the premises and threatened two members of staff for money.

It is believed the robber was again armed with a knife.

The raider stole cash and then fled.

No-one was injured in the incident.

A 27-year-old man from Rednal was arrested yesterday evening (Wednesday) on suspicion of robbery and remains in police custody at this time.

Officers from West Mercia Police said their enquiries were ongoing and urged anyone who witnessed any of the incidents to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
