A man has been arrested after a dog was stolen in a suspected knifepoint robbery in Potters Bar on Friday.
At around 10.33am, a man in his 20s was walking his dog in the field behind the Furzefield Leisure Centre in Mutton Lane, when a black Ford Kuga drove down the nearby service road.
A man was believed to have exited the vehicle and approached the victim before demanding the dog, while reportedly in possession of a knife.
The dog was handed over and the thief allegedly made off into the wood while the vehicle drove off.
Following police enquiries, the dog was found in Kent on Saturday. A 36-year-old man from Edmonton, London was also arrested before being bailed until Monday, July 12, with strict conditions.
