Did you see man attempt to steal from Newark shop?

Detectives are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed a report of attempted robbery in Newark.

Police were called at 9.30pm on Sunday 17 January after a man was reported to have entered the Premier Shop in Cromwell Road and instructed an employee to open the till and handover cash.

When the employee refused, the man is believed to have left the store.

It is thought that a number of people were present at the store at the time and detectives have appealed to anyone who may have been present to contact police as soon as possible.

Detective Constable Andrew Brownless, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “While nothing was taken in this incident, we are working hard to establish the circumstances and identify a suspect.

“Robbery is a serious offence and Nottinghamshire Police will always thoroughly investigate all reports made to the force.

“If you were at the shop at the time or have any information that could aid us in our investigation, please contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 618 of 17 January 2021.”
