Man Arrested After Armed Coton Robbery

A 35-year-old man has been arrested after four armed men robbed an elderly couple's home in Coton.

The group smashed their way into the property in Madingley Road on the night of Saturday, November 29, wearing boiler suits and with their faces covered. They then demanded cash and threatened the couple in their 70s.

The man, who is from Cambrdge, was arrested on Saturday (December 27) on suspicion of robbery and has been released on police bail until January 29.

DI Page is urging anyone with information to get in contact. You can call him on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
