A KNIFE-wielding robber threatened staff at a supermarket before making off with £150.

Terrified workers at the Co-operative store in Flint were preparing to close when a man armed with a knife came in and demanded money from the till.

There were five customers and four members of staff in the store when the robber struck at about 8.45pm on Friday.

The man is described as white, more than 6ft tall and in his mid-20s.

He was wearing a peaked cap, a scarf across his face and a black hooded jacket, with the hood pulled up over the cap. He was also carrying a black drawstring bag.
