A MAN was threatened with machetes during an armed robbery on St Andrews Road in Pershore.

A ‘significant’ number of officers including armed patrols and specialists units attend the scene.

An investigation is now underway, led by detectives and digital forensics officers.

Officers are appealing for anybody who may have seen the incident or who may have CCTV or doorbell footage.
