Two men were due to appear in court today after an alleged attempted robbery from a convenience store in Aberdeen.
Police have confirmed that two men, both 22, have been charged over the alleged incident at the Premier shop on Union Street at 2.30am on Wednesday.
Both men have also been charged in relation to an alleged assault and robbery of a 35-year-old man.
It allegedly happened on the nearby Justice Street just before 2am on Wednesday, around 30 minutes before the alleged incident at the Premier shop.
A manhunt was launched by Police Scotland on Wednesday in connection with the incident.
Detectives appealed for any witnesses to come forward.
Yesterday Musheaq Nazir, manager of the shop, told the Evening Express that cashier Eric Odane was in “state-of-shock” over the alleged attempted robbery.
“It’s the first time something like this has happened, you don’t expect it in the city centre,” he said.
Detective Inspector Allen Shaw, from Police Scotland, who led the inquiry, thanked the people of Aberdeen for help with the incident. He said: “Thankfully nobody was seriously injured as a result of these incidents and I would like to take this opportunity to thank members of the public who assisted us with our inquiries.”
