The Shropshire Star reports on October 11 in the article ‘CCTV Plea After Oswestry Knife Robbery’, that police have asked businesses with CCTV systems installed to contact them as the systems may have recorded important evidence after an alleged attempted armed robbery. The incident, which occurred on the morning of October 10, left a woman with hand injuries after she was allegedly attacked with a knife by a man. The man has been described by police as white, in his 20s, and wearing a light hooded top and a darker coloured anorak. Police have said the woman’s injuries are not considered serious, but investigations are continuing into the role the knife played in her injuries.
In an attempt to further their investigations, police have appealed for town businesses with CCTV to get in touch with officers. West Mercia Police spokesman Chris Ammonds told the Shropshire Star that:
“Investigations are continuing and we are asking businesses and householders in the vicinity who have CCTV to check if they have picked up any evidence. The female victim managed to fend off the white, ‘scruffy’, male offender who was forced to flee the scene without stealing anything. The female suffered injuries to her hand but thankfully they’re not too serious.”
