Police Scotland launched an appeal for information after the Tesco Express in the city’s King Street was robbed last Thursday by two hooded men, armed with what was described as a blunt weapon. The robbers escaped with a low figure sum of cash on bicycles.

A force spokesman said today: “

Police Scotland can confirm that a 17 year-old man has been charged in connection with a robbery at Tesco Express, King Street, Aberdeen during the evening of Thursday 5 September. The man is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today.”
