A man attempted to steal cash from a shop in Swinton.

Around 10am on Thursday 23 January 2014, a man went into Cash for Clothing on Chorley Road in Swinton.

The man produced a large hunting style knife from his jacket and the shop assistant fled to the rear of the shop. The man searched a handbag before leaving the shop.

Nothing was taken.

The man is described as white, approximately 40-years-old and around 5ft 6in tall. He is described as being of average build and having black teeth. He was wearing a hat, a black jacket and navy jeans.

Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident and are appealing for the public’s help in identifying him.

Detective Sergeant Karl Dalton said: “While nothing was taken, a man brandished a knife which was understandably distressing for the shop assistant. We have increased our patrols in the area but would ask if anyone has any information about the incident to call police.

“The CCTV image shows a man standing in the Lakes Medical Centre foyer across the road from Cash for Clothing just minutes before the attempted robbery happened.

“We are very keen to speak to this man. If you were there shortly before 10am and remember seeing this man or you recognise him we would be interested to hear from you.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
