Knife-wielding robber foiled in his attempt to get away with cash from shop

A knife-wielding robber was foiled in his night-time attempt to get away with cash and Lottery scratch cards from a shop in Bury St Edmunds.

The attempted robbery took place last Friday, February 21, at about 8.15pm, at Hardwick Convenience Store, in Home Farm Lane.

A man, (pictured above) who was in possession of a knife, entered the shop and demanded cash be placed in a bag but he left after he was told there was not much cash available and was also denied Lottery scratch cards. No items were stolen.

Officers would like to speak to the man depicted in the CCTV images in connection with the incident.

He was dressed all in black, including a black hat, black snood or scarf covering his face, a black leather jacket, black trousers and dark coloured shoes. He was also carrying a black leather satchel bag.

Anyone who recognises the man, saw anything suspicious or has any knowledge of the incident should contact Suffolk Police, quoting reference number 37/11186/20, via.
