Police officers investigating the robbery of the post office in Stoke-by-Nayland, which took place over the weekend, confirmed that three people have been arrested in connection with the incident.

The robbery happened at some point between 10.40am and 11.10am on Saturday, when three offenders entered the post office in Park Street and threatened staff, demanding they hand over money.

One of the robbers brandished a stun gun and used it against a member of staff, although no physical harm was caused.

The offenders then stole a till from the premises, before leaving and driving away in a vehicle.

It is understood that nobody was hurt as a result of the incident.

Suffolk Police subsequently traced the getaway to an address in Manningtree, where it had been registered to, and officers arrested three people - a 48-year-old man, a 40-year-old man and a 59-year-old woman - on suspicion of robbery.

All three of them were taken to the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

The 40-year-old man has now been released on bail, on the condition that he returns to police on January 10, 2019, pending additional enquiries into the incident.

Meanwhile, the 48-year-old man and the 59-year-old woman were both released under investigation, pending further enquiries.

Officers now say they would like anybody who witnessed the robbery taking place, or who has any knowledge of what occurred, to come forward.

If you can help the investigation, call Ipswich CID on 101, making sure to quote the crime reference number 37/72433/18.
