Thames Valley release CCTV image following attempted armed robbery at Brands Hill
Thames Valley Police have released a CCTV image of a man police want to speak to in connection with an attempted armed robbery at the Brands Hill post office two weeks ago.
Police have today issued an image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the attempted robbery at Brands Hill post office two weeks ago – but the blurred image, of a man in a hoody, provides few clues.
The robber, wielding a knife, ordered owner Prabaharan Kulam to open his till around 10:30am on Sunday, November 8. But Mr Kulum decided to fight back, pressing the panic button and grabbing an umbrella that was close to hand.
The man became aggressive and threatening but eventually ran off.
Investigating officer, Det Con Amanda Winterbourne of Force CID based at Maidenhead police station, said:
“I would appeal to anyone who recognises the man in these CCTV images to contact police immediately as we believe he might have vital information that can aid our appeal.
“This was an extremely frightening experience for the members of staff so it is important that if you have any information, no matter how insignificant you think it might be, you should contact police by visiting your nearest police station or calling 101.”
So rack your brains: do you know anybody in a grey hoody?
Although there was no description provided with the CCTV image from Police, in an earlier newspaper report the offender was described as a 5½ ft, slim,white man in his mid twenties to thirties.
Both local newspapers have featured the image today.
If you don’t want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
