Robber attacked shopkeeper with baseball bat

A ROBBER attacked a shopkeeper with a baseball bat before taking cash from the till yesterday (Sunday April 3).

A man went into a corner shop in Campion Terrace at around 3.50pm and bought an item.

He returned shortly afterwards and assaulted the shopkeeper with a baseball bat before removing a quantity of cash from the till.

The victim – a woman in her 40s – suffered head injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

Police want to speak to the man pictured as they believe he may have information about the robbery.

Det Sgt Pete Sherwood said: “Understandably this was a shocking incident for the victim, who was left extremely shaken up.

“Thankfully she did not suffer more severe injuries, but we are particularly keen to speak to the man pictured as we believe he may have information that can help our ongoing enquiries.

“If you are the man or recognise him, please get in touch with us. Equally, we’d encourage anyone that was in the shop or in the vicinity of Campion Terrace between 3.45pm and 4pm on Sunday who witnessed the incident to come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident 206 of April 3.
