Armed robbery outside Sainsbury's in Oadby

One man has been injured in an armed robbery outside a supermarket in Leicestershire.

Police were called to Sainsbury's on Glen Road in Oadby at about 1020 BST on Friday.

The robbery did not take place inside the store but in the car park, a Leicestershire Police spokeswoman said.

It is not yet known what was taken in the robbery but the injured man was taken for treatment to the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Police said they believed the suspect fled the scene in a small, black car and have asked anyone who may have seen the vehicle near the time of the robbery, to contact them.

The Sainsbury's store remains closed while officers carry out their investigations but is expected to re-open later.
