Knife threat made to Spalding antique dealer
A Spalding antique dealer was left shaken but unbowed after a man threatened him with a knife and demanded cash on Tuesday.
John Mumford (78), of Spalding Antiques in Abbey Path, was grabbed and a knife held in front of him during an attempted robbery which is now being investigated by police.
The man was over the top of me with this knife as I was sitting in my chair, so I tried to get up and I must have kicked the cabinet over
The man ran off after a cabinet inside the antiques store was knocked over by Mr Mumford as he got up from his seat and the dealer admitted “it was a good job I did”.
