Knife-wielding raider flees empy handed

19 August, 2016

Hampshire Police have released CCTV images in an attempt to identify a knife-wielding raider who attempted to rob a forecourt shop.

Officers were called to the Jet Service Station in Woolmer Way, Bordon, at around 9.20pm on Wednesday August 17 to reports of an attempted knifepoint robbery.

A man with his face covered entered the garage, walked up to the tills holding a knife, which was in a plastic carrier bag throughout the incident and demanded money from the till.

Two members of staff pressed the panic button and the man fled the garage empty handed.

He is described as being white, aged in his 20s and approximately 5ft 7ins tall. He spoke with a local accent.

He was wearing a black hooded top with the hood up, a grey scarf covering his face, a pair of dark coloured gloves, black trousers and lighter trainers.

Detective constable Mark Ogburn said: “We would like to speak to anyone who thinks they may know the identity of the man captured on these CCTV images.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area before or after the incident as this information could assist our investigation.

“This is a rare occurrence in the area and fortunately no one was injured during the incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Ogburn on 101, quoting 44160309435, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
