At around 12.15pm a man entered Nadeem’s Store on Stenhouse Cross and threatened staff with a knife before stealing the cleaning product.

The man is described as white, 5 foot 10 inches to 6 foot tall and around 25 years old. Detective Constable Kevin Walls at Corstorphine CID said: “This was a frightening incident for staff and officers quickly attended and searched the area but the man was not located. The man was seen to enter the shop earlier so may have been loitering in the area prior to the robbery.”
