A lone cashier on duty at a Chatteris service station was held up at gunpoint last night (Saturday).
The threat was made to the teenager at around 10pm at the Applegreen Service Station in Bridge Street opposite Aldi.
The cashier, a young man from the town, is not thought to have to be injured but is badly shaken.
His mother posted to a local social media group that he was ok but it was “the worst feeling to know your son has been held up at gunpoint”.
It is not known how much, if any, money was stolen.
