'Large carving knife' used in off-licence robbery
Police are appealing for information following a knifepoint robbery at an off-licence in Longlevens last night.
Two men made off with cigarettes and cash from the till after holding up the store in Oxstalls Lane at about 9.35pm yesterday with what is described as a "large carving knife".
A woman working at the shop was pushed during the incident but was otherwise unharmed, although she was left very shaken up.
The men ran off along Oxstalls Way and it is believed may have made their escape through the University of Gloucestershire campus.
