Two men have been arrested after a robbery at a convenience store in Queensferry, in which a shopkeeper was attacked.
The Costcutter store on Station Road was cordoned off by police following the raid at around 6.30pm on Thursday evening. The suspects, who fled empty-handed from the store, are being questioned at Wrexham police station.
A 58 year-old man, who suffered serious injuries after he was reportedly stabbed, remains in a stable condition in hospital. His injuries have been described as significant but not life threatening.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil Harrison said: ”This was a serious and violent attack on a lone shop keeper resulting in him receiving serious injuries. Our thoughts are with him and his family and specially trained officers have been appointed to support them.”
”I am appealing for any witnesses to the incident to come forward, particularly a man who we believe was in the store at the time of the attack. This individual may be able to provide key evidence as we move the investigation forward.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 (quoting reference no. U184614) or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
