Supermarket robbery at knifepoint 

A man was arrested in Lanzarote, accused of threatening a supermarket worker with a knife.

The attempted robbery happened in Mozaga in Costa Teguise.

The 42-year-old man went into the premises pretending to be a customer but when no-one else was around, he took the opportunity to threaten the saleswoman with the knife and ordered her to hand over cash from the till. He got away with 200 euros.

However, the robbery was caught on CCTV which allowed the police to identify the robber.
