A 50-year-old man has been charged with robbery after a woman was held at gun point in a Northampton town centre street.

Police revealed this afternoon the man was arrested in connection with an incident in Bouverie Walk, just off Wellingborough Road, some time between 3pm and 6pm on Friday.

A woman was held at gun point by a man who demanded money from her. They later used the woman’s debit card at a cashpoint machine at the Sainsbury’s store in Wellingborough Road.

A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said: “We are appealing for any witnesses to come forward who may have seen any suspicious activity around the store’s cashpoint, or in the Wellingborough Road, late last Friday afternoon.”
