A TEENAGER has been arrested on suspicion of carrying out a terrifying robbery at a drive-thru of a fast food restaurant in a Suffolk town.

Police have arrested a 19-year-old man from Sudbury on suspicion of carrying out the raid at the Kentucky Fried Chicken site on Northern Road, Sudbury last Thursday.

A significant amount of cash was taken in the incident at 9.40pm where staff were confronted by a knife-wielding robber who climbed through the drive-through hatch.
