Teenager Shaun Cowie admits Aberdeen Spar knife robbery

A teenager has admitted carrying out an armed robbery at an Aberdeen shop.

Shaun Cowie, 18, targeted the Spar store in Victoria Road in May with a knife, alongside an accomplice who has not been traced.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard Cowie told police one worker struggled to open the till "because she was shaking like a leaf".

The pair escaped with almost £1,000. Sentence was deferred for background reports.
