A MAN has been arrested and charged in connection with an alleged armed raid at an East Renfrewshire shop.

Police were called to the Usave store in Main Street, Busby, at 10.25pm on Monday, November 16, after receiving a report of a knifeman threatening staff.

The man had fled the scene by the time officers arrived but a 38-year-old suspect was later traced to a nearby property and arrested, pending an appearance at Paisley Sheriff Court.
