A TEENAGER has been quizzed by detectives over an armed robbery in which a woman was threatened with a knife and punched.

The 17-year-old, who has been bailed pending further inquiries, is the second suspect arrested over the break-in at the house in Bradwell in the Peak District.

A 19-year-old had already been quizzed and released on bail.

Police were called to investigate after a 66-year-old woman in her home on Netherside realised a man was standing behind her, holding a knife.

He threatened her and she ran past him and down her stairs but he followed her and punched her in the face before running off.

Cash was stolen from the house.

Anyone with information about the robbery, on February 23, can call Derbyshire Police on 0345 1233333 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
