Man arrested for robbery with a knife in Odda

A young female shop worker was robbed in the centre of Odda on Saturday afternoon. A man in his twenties has been arrested for the robbery.

She may have been pushed or has tripped and fallen, says the Operations Manager in the West Police District, Tatjana Knappen, to Bergens Tidende.

The young woman is now taken care of by health personnel.
