An 18-year-old man has been charged with robbery and threatening a person with a blade following a raid at a pawnbrokers in Kent.

Police said two masked men threatened the manager with a weapon believed to be a machete during the raid in High Street, Chatham, on Monday.

The robbers stole £300 cash and a "large amount of gold". The teenager charged is from Chatham.

Detectives have released a CCTV image of another man they want to question.

The man was wearing a dark blue boiler suit with a hood up and had his face covered with a black mask with a zipped front.

Police want to hear from anyone who saw the offenders running towards Chatham Hill or who has information about the robbery.
