A SHOPKEEPER was threatened with a large knife during a robbery at Christleton Post Office.
The male staff member was not hurt during the incident which took place on Sunday at about 5pm.
Two men fled the scene on foot with a two-figure sum of money after they had demanded the shopkeeper hand over cash from the till.
The duo, a 23-year-old man from Warrington and a 19-year-old man local to the Chester area, were arrested shortly after the incident which took place at the Village Road store in Christleton.
Both men are currently in police custody and are awaiting interview.
Cheshire Constabulary spokeswoman Shelley Williams said: “We are seeking witnesses or anyone who was in the area at the time to contact Chester CID on 0845 458 0000 or information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
