Man admits to shop raid

An ARMED robber threatened to kill a shopkeeper before the takings from a till were poured into his rucksack.

But after Michael Davies fled from the premises, the victim and a customer flagged down a passing police car and officers found him standing at the rear of the premises.

They found 64 in his rucksack along with a balaclava, an eight-inch knife and a meat cleaver.
