Police investigate another armed robbery at a Spar in south-east Cornwall.

A week after a store in East Looe was targeted, there has been an attack at Highwood Park in Dobwalls.

A man swiped around £500 on Saturday night after threatening staff with a knife.

He is described as a white man, approximately 5’ 6” in height, slim build, wearing a black hoody, a white balaclava, blue jeans and white trainers; he carried a white and green plastic bag.

Detectives are investigating a possible link between the two attacks.
