Armed robbery at Tesco store

Have your say

A MAN armed with a knife stole cash during a robbery at a Tesco Express store in North Lincolnshire.

Humberside Police are appealing for help to trace the suspect involved in the robbery, which took place at the shop on Crowle High Street between 9.20pm and 9.30pm last night, July 29.

The suspect is said to have approached the store, put on a full face balaclava and approached a female member of staff who was working on the till.

He then threatened the woman and demanded cash, which she handed over and he left the store.

It is believed he then turned left into an alley, cut through an open gate and into Cross Street.

Despite an extensive search by the armed response team and police helicopter, the suspect has not been traced.

He is described as white, 6ft 2 tall, with light brown hair that he wore spiked at the front. His complexion was said to be pale and he had acne.

He wore a brown padded jacket, with a paler brown top half and arms and black tracksuit bottoms.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting log number 596.
