TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of robbing a shop in a late night raid.

The Premier Shop, Abbey Stores, on Abenbury Road, Wrexham, was targeted by raiders wearing motorbike helmets who terrified shop staff before making off with cash on Friday night.

The men from Caia Park are said to have entered the store, threatening two members of staff before making off on foot with the cash at about 10pm.

No one was injured but store staff were treated for shock.

Yesterday Det Insp Arwyn Jones of North Wales Police said: “Following police enquiries at an address on the Caia Park Estate this morning, an 18-year-old man and a 36-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of robbery and are currently at Wrexham Police Station awaiting interview.

“The investigation is ongoing.”

On Saturday police were conducting house-to-house inquiries on Abenbury Road.

Anyone with information should call officers at Wrexham CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
