MAN CHARGED AFTER NEWCASTLE WEST ARMED ROBBERY

A 23-year-old man has been charged, following the armed robbery of a supermarket in Newcastle West overnight.

Just before 1.30am, a man entered a supermarket on King Street, and allegedly threatened a female employee with a syringe.

He demanded cash and cigarettes before jumping the counter and taking four mobile phones.

The man fled the scene.

Then shortly before 4am, a man allegedly smashed the front window of a jewellery shop on Kenrick Street, The Junction, before taking several pieces of jewellery.

A couple of hours later, a 23-year-old man attended Newcastle Police Station and spoke with officers.

He was arrested, and refused bail to face Newcastle Local Court today.
