Lowestoft: Attempted Robbery With Gun
A man's tried to rob a shop in Lowestoft, Suffolk with a gun.
Police are appealing for information after an attempted armed robbery at the Co-Op store at Westwood Avenue in Lowestoft around 6.05pm yesterday, Monday 27 May.
A man - described as white, of average height, of medium to stocky build, wearing white trainers, beige coloured trousers, a khaki/grey hooded top and a dark coloured balaclava partially over his face – went into the store, approached a female member of staff behind the counter and demanded money from the till. When told the till could not be opened he made a further demand and produced what appeared to be a pistol. The man was then confronted by two other members of staff and he fled empty handed.
The offender is believed to have approached the premises on foot from Broadwaters Road.
No one was hurt in the incident although members of staff were left shaken by what happened.
CCTV has shown the area was busy at the time and police need to speak to anyone who saw the man in the area or anyone with information about who he is.
