Police have made four arrests following a robbery in Chippenham on the 7th March.

Officers were called to a report that two people had been robbed near to Aldi in Foundry Lane at about 20.10 on the night in question.

Descriptions of suspects were passed to officers on the ground who carried out swift area searches and within 27 minutes of the initial call, had arrested four people who had all made off from the scene on foot in different directions.

Two 15-year-old girls were arrested on suspicion of theft and robbery and a 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of robbery - they were taken into custody at Gablecross for further questioning.
