Detectives are currently questioning three Sheffield men in connection with two armed robberies at convenience stores earlier this week.

The men, aged 29, 32 and 34-years old, were arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of robbery and remain in police custody today.

Two men entered a Spar store on Stannington Road at around 9.30pm on Sunday, 27 September.

Staff at the store were alleged to have been threatened with a knife.

The pair left the store with cash and a quantity of cigarettes.

On Tuesday, September 29, three men entered a One Stop Shop on Cottam Road in High Green at around 9.55pm.

The two incidents are thought to be linked.

Staff were allegedly threatened with a knife before the men left with a substantial amount of cash.

The alleged incident in High Green is the fourth armed robbery in as many days across the city.

In a separate incident, two men wearing Halloween masks threatened terrified shop staff with a gun and made off with £500 at a Co-op store in Norton Lees last Sunday around 7.20pm

Another incident in Grimesthorpe left a man hospitalised after suspects left the store with £50 at 6.45pm on Sunday.

The incidents are not thought to be linked.
