A MAN has been charged over a robbery at a petrol station in Steeple Aston near Bicester on Sunday last week.

Lee Holden, 31, from Pegasus Road in Oxford, has been charged with robbery and was been remanded in custody to appear at Banbury Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

But police investigating the robbery continue to appeal for witnesses.

Det Con Ian Gibbard said: “Although a man has been arrested and charged in relation to this incident our investigation is ongoing.

“We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have seen a small white van parked close to the Hopcroft Holt petrol station between 7.30pm or 8pm on Sunday or anyone seen acting suspiciously in the area at the time.”

Anyone with any information should contact Banbury CID via 08458 505505, or the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555111.
