Police are investigating after a knife-point robbery at a store in Normanby on Wednesday.

Just after 10.20pm a man entered Jack's Store at the junction of Normanby Road and Normanby High Street, and made threats with a knife.

The man approached the till area, where he pulled out a knife and demanded money.

He then made off with a large amount of cash before crossing Normanby High Street and heading in the direction of Cleveland Street.

The suspect is describe as a white male, of slim build, around 5ft 5" tall, aged in his twenties with a small moustache and wearing black clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Residents of Redcar and Cleveland are being encouraged to continue to get tested for Covid-19 at one of the testing sites across the area.

Key workers and people who cannot work from home are recommended to get tested twice a week along with households and bubbles of pupils, students and staff of schools, nurseries and colleges.

Asymptomatic testing, for people not showing any Covid-19 symptoms, aimed at key workers and people who cannot work from home is available at Redcar Leisure Centre, Loftus Fire Station, and at the Golden Boy Green Community Centre in South Bank.

Tests can be booked online. However, if you are unable to book a test a very limited number of walk-in appointments are available each day.
