Teenager in armed hold-up at Corowa florist

POLICE are investigating an armed hold-up at a Corowa florist.

The Sanger Street business was targeted about 9.30am this morning with a teenage boy entering the shop and distracting the female owner before grabbing scissors.

The boy is then reported to have threatened the owner before leaving with cash.

Employees from a neighbouring firm chased the boy along an alley way to the rear of the business, but he is believed to be still at large.
