Attempted robbery

Hull: Appeal for witnesses and information

11 Nov 2017

We want to find two men in connection with an attempted robbery at a bookmakers in Bilton near Hull.

One of the men allegedly walked into the Betfred shop on Ganstead Lane around 7.30pm on 31 October 2017 with a bladed weapon and demanded money. The other man waited outside.

Staff inside the bookmakers set off the panic alarm and the man ran out of the premises without any money. Both men then ran off in the direction of Ganstead.

The man who entered the shop has been described as white, in his early 30s, and about 6 foot tall with a gaunt looking face. He was wearing a dark blue tracksuit top with the hood up.
