Balaclava-clad men fled empty handed after an attempted robbery.
Police are appealing for witnesses and information following the frightening incident at A & D Mini Market in Potters Bar High Street on Friday, October 9.
At around 10pm, three offenders went into the store wearing balaclavas. They made threats to a member of staff who challenged them before they left the scene in a blue vehicle.
The offenders are described as two white men and a black man aged between 19 and 25 years old.
Detective Constable Victoria Murray is investigating and said: “Thankfully the member of staff was not injured and nothing was taken from the store.
“I believe there will have been a number of people around at that time of night on a Friday and I would ask anyone who saw these people going into or coming out of the shop or arriving or leaving the scene to please contact me with information.”
Anyone with information should please contact DC Murray via the Herts Police non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference number J3/15/1068. Alternatively contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their Anonymous Online Form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
