A man threatened a cashier with a knife when he unsuccessfully tried to rob an off-licence.
The offender walked into VSE Wines in Broadwater Crescent, Stevenage, at around 9.50pm on Friday, April 3.
As he entered the shop he took out of the knife and demanded that the member of staff hand over money. Before he could act the person managed to get to a secure part of the store and he left empty handed.
He is described as a white, of medium build and 5ft 7ins tall. He was wearing a blue hooded top and had something dark coloured covering his face.
Det Con Rob Sheldon is investigating and said: “I would like to appeal to anyone who may have been in the Broadwater Crescent area that night and saw anything which could assist my inquiries to please contact me.”
