Can you help us identify this man?
We’d like to speak to him after an attempted robbery at Betfred in Blackpool Road, Preston, this morning (Friday June 1st).
At 8.40am a man – who said he had a knife – jumped over the counter and demanded money from the till.
He fled empty handed but we are now asking for the public’s help to identify the man in the CCTV images.
PC Dan Armstrong said: “This was an extremely frightening experience for the shop assistant who has been left very shaken by the incident.
“Fortunately the man did not manage to steal any money, however we are still very keen to speak to him.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Preston CID on 01772 209745 quoting log 0408 of June 1st.
