AN appeal has been launched to trace a man who reportedly assaulted a supermarket worker in Cudworth.

On August 19, at 5.15pm, two men entered the Co-op store on Barnsley Road and attempted to steal items.

They were then challenged by staff, which led to one of the suspects becoming aggressive and assaulting a member of staff.

The second suspect then tried to assault another member of staff who came to help – alcohol was subsequently stolen from the store.

A police spokesperson said: “Enquiries are ongoing but officers are keen to identify the man in the images as he may be able to assist with enquiries.

“Do you recognise him?

“If you have any information, please contact 101 quoting incident number 612 of Thursday August 19, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
