Police plea after Beverley robbery attempt

Do you know this man? Police want to talk to him regarded an alleged attempted robbery in Beverley

Police have issued a CCTV picture of a man they want to interview in connection with an alleged attempted robbery in Beverley in the early hours of Monday morning.

It happened at the 24 hour Sewell’s petrol station on Holme Church Lane around 3.45am. A spokesman told Beverley FM: “It’s thought he had some kind of weapon on him but he ran off in the direction of the roundabout at the end of the southern bypass before taking anything.”

Police say the man was wearing a peaked hat and was wearing dark clothing. They are urging anyone who recognises the man or has any information about the alleged attempted robbery to contact them on 101. The photograph can be viewed on the news section of the website.

Meanwhile, police are also appealing for witnesses and for help after a recent burglary in Dunswell during which £19,000 worth of jewellery was stolen from a house. The burglary took place on Wednesday July 25 at a house in The Meadows. 

In a statement issued to Beverley FM this week, police said the intruder entered via the front of the house while the owner was in the back garden.

Among over 20 items stolen were a men’s Tag Carrera auto chrono watch, a women’s Gucci watch, several diamond rings, a Tiffany heart chain, ring and necklace, a Vivian Westwood white watch and a pair of Chanel sunglasses. The police spokesman added: “If you have been offered any of these items or have any information that will help us with our enquiries please call us on 101 quoting reference 16/78635/18.  Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. You won’t be asked your name and you could receive a cash reward.
