Spalding: Armed Robbery - Men Charged

Two men have been charged in connection with an armed robbery in Spalding.

Police were called to Gate Farm, on Holbeach Road in the town, shortly after midday on Friday 12th July.

Three men entered the site office and sprayed a male member of staff with a substance similar to pepper spray.

One of the offenders then assaulted him by hitting him with what appeared to be a gun, before taking a large amount of cash from the premises.

The staff member was treated by ambulance for the effects of the spray but did not go to hospital.

Olegs Nikolajevs (23), of no fixed address, and Kristaps Vilcins (21) of School Lane, Wisbech, have both been charged with robbery (sum quoted in charge £18,492.39), possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause violence and possession of a weapon for the discharge of noxious liquid or gas.

Both will appear before Grantham Magistrates this morning (Wednesday 17th July).
