Two men sought

Cottingham: Can you help?

26 Feb 2018

We’re looking for two men in connection with a robbery and attempted robbery in Cottingham on 1 February 2018.

The robbery happened on Caukeel Lane which runs between Hallgate and Station Road around 4.45pm.

A 29-year-old man was walking his dog when he was approached by the men wearing hoodies. They threatened the victim and stole money off him before running off towards Station Road.

The attempted robbery took place about 45 minutes later near Creyke Beck. A woman who was also walking her dog was approached by a similar looking pair of males who again threatened her and asked her for cash. Nothing was stolen.

We think the two incidents may be linked.

The suspects were both white and aged about 20. One was around 6 feet tall, the other a bit shorter. One had a green hoodie on, the other a grey one.

Can you help us in identifying these two suspects? Please call 101 quoting references 16/19548/18 or 16/19524/18.
