Police return to scene of armed robbery

Police have returned to the scene of an armed robbery in Perth a week after the incident as they made a fresh appeal for information.

A shop worker was threatened with a knife at Costcutter in Main Street, Bridgend, at 21:30 on 17 July by a male who then fled with a sum of money.

Officers spoke to pedestrians and local residents on Sunday evening.

They have also carried out door to door inquiries and reviewed CCTV footage in the past week.

Det Sgt Marshall McKay said: "I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have seen anything suspicious to come forward.

"We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who was on Perth Bridge or in Bridgend around 21:30 on Sunday 17 July.

"The man responsible is described as being 5ft 11in tall, wearing a navy blue hooded top and navy blue tracksuit bottoms."
