A man has been sentenced for nine years following an attempted robbery at a shop in Wallsend.
Peter Laws, 33, formerly of Westmorland Road, North Shields, was convicted of several offences, including robbery and possession of an offensive weapon when he appeared at Newcastle Crown Court on Monday, March 27.
The offence took place at the Lifestyle Express, Addington Drive, Wallsend, on Boxing Day last year. While in the store as a customer, Mr Laws produced a knife and threatened to stab the owner unless he handed over cash before leaving the store.

"We are committed to taking action against those responsible for serious offences such as robbery and carrying weapons. We recognise these offences may cause a great deal of concern in our communities and that’s why we’re firmly focused on making sure offenders are caught and face the consequences of their actions."
