Police appeal after attempted robbery

Wednesday January 25 2017

Do you recognise this man? Do you recognise this man?

POLICE have released an e-fit of a wanted man after an attempted robbery at Morrisons Cortonwood, in which a woman was threatened with a claw hammer.

The incident happened in the car park at Cortonwood Retail Park on Thursday January 19
at about 8pm.

The 51-year-old woman was getting into her car outside of the supermarket, when a man got into the front seat and reportedly threatened her with a claw hammer, before trying to steal her handbag and car keys.

The man left the car empty handed and got into what is described as a black people carrier type car.

The woman suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident.

The man has been described as white, in his early 40s and of a slim build. He is thought to have been wearing a cream coloured baseball cap and jeans.

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting incident number 1035 of 19 January 2017.

Information can also be given to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111

Looking at that picture it shouldn't be difficult to find a man in a hat balancing a slug on his top lip.

You'd hope so, wouldn't you.
Hope he gets caught, it's not on menacing people doing their shopping at a supermarket.

You should be able to go shopping without been threaten.

You think your anonymous but your not. Everything is traceable these days so when the people who run this site have had enough you will be traced and end up in court. Read the papers.. trolls get what they deserve. Your not even remotely funny

Well said John. I read the nonsense this fool puts on WAB, utter rubbish.
WAB - trace this `person`s IP address and take him to court. I`d love to see the comments when that was published on WAB

Trace an IP address? nothing links an IP address to a person, this is why it would never hold up in court and hasn't when used.

It's not against the law you fools john, me hear me now, in this country we have something called freedom of speech, it is not a offence to talk stupidity on a forum is it, plus the IP address might not even be registered if he is using his mobile phone to comment, and why would police be interested in a joker on WAB when they can't even be bothered to catch real criminals

Jack Jones, you are correct, it is not an offence to chat sh*t on a forum such as WAB.
It serves a purpose by keeping people engaged and it certainly gives me a lot of amusement, as well as sometimes making me reflect on a few issues going on.

Very true Brian, it's not even against the law to troll and if it was police wouldn't really care it's up to WAB to moderate it

What's up with the police these days, asking us to do their jobs for them? They should be out catching criminals themselves instead of filling in forms and going on diversity courses.

The police have been seeking further information about crimes forever, even before social media was so prolific. I don't think this constitutes asking us to do their jobs for them. They do need to fill in forms and be accountable and also to go on training eg diversity training. We need more police and more investment in the police force.

Exactly Wayne. It is indeed typical of today's society, where a clown faced billionaire joker who lives in a gold plated tower finds himself leader of the free world and everybody misses the point.
