A St Helens teen has been charged with attempting to rob a newsagents in Sutton Manor last month.

The 14-year-old boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, is set to appear before St Helens Youth Court on September 25.

Police were called to MNS News on Jubits Lane shortly after 10pm on August 13 after two youths walked in carrying an advertising sign they had picked up outside.

They then threatened a man behind the counter and demanded cash, but ran off empty-handed after he threatened to press a panic button.
