Man accused of Lincoln 'gunpoint' robbery

A 19-year-old man has been charged with threatening a man with a replica gun and robbing him in Lincoln city centre.

Police, including a firearms officer, were called to St Rumbold Street on Friday night after a man was robbed of cash.

The suspect was arrested and taken for questioning.

He was later charged with robbery and possession of a replica gun in a public place and is due to appear at Lincoln Magistrates' Court later.

It is thought three or four other men were present during the robbery and anyone with any information has been asked to contact Lincolnshire Police.
