Crawley Knifepoint Robbery

A man has been jailed following a knife-point robbery at a shop in Crawley.

Craig Baker entered the Co-Op in Ifield Drive armed with a 10-inch kitchen knife and demanded a member of staff to hand over cash.

The staff member refused and was able to activate the security alarm.

In a police interview Baker confessed, saying, “I didn’t mean to do anything naughty… You guys have done the right thing getting me off the streets”.

He was remanded in custody and sentenced to a total of 32 months’ imprisonment.
