Attempted robbery in Caistor


An attempted robbery has been made on a shop in Caistor.

At about 8.05pm on Friday, December 13, a man entered the market place fish and chip shop and demanded cash from the staff while threatening them with what is believed to have been an air rifle.

The staff did not comply with the request and the offender left the premises.

The employees present were not injured, but were understandably shaken by the experience.

The offender is described as a white male aged late 20s to mid 30s.

He is 5’7” to 5’10” tall and slim to medium build, clean shaven with no noticeable accent.

He was wearing a green or brown hooded top with the draw string pulled tight so only his face was visible.

The air rifle was partially wrapped in what may have been wax jacket or a dark coat.

Detective Sergeant Dave Harrop and Detective Constable Jim Wilson are investigating the crime.

They are asking witnesses or anyone with any information about the incident to contact them via the 101 non-emergency number.
