At about 11am two armed officers accompanied by another officer knocked on the door of a house in Banbury and arrested an 18-year-old man on suspicion of robbery.

Three more officers were deployed to the scene before a hooded man was led out in handcuffs.

The man has been released on bail until November 8.
