Attempted armed robbery at St Neots store

GUNMEN have attempted to rob The One Stop Shop in Eynesbury.

Cambridgeshire police said that two men, who were thought to be in possession of a black handgun, wearing balaclavas were seen by a member of the public attempting to enter the front of the store in Berkley Street at about 6.40am last Friday (July 29).

At about the same time two members of staff were taking a delivery of bread at the back of the store prior to its opening.

After failing to get inside, the men were seen to leave in the direction of Barford Road.

The first man was described as white, aged between 21 and 40, around 5ft 8in tall and slim. He was wearing a black hooded top, black and white trainers and a balaclava.

The second was described as white, aged between 16 and 20, around 5ft 10in tall and slim. He was wearing dark clothing and a balaclava with ski goggles over his eyes.

Dc Hollie Daines, investigating, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the men in the area before or after putting on the balaclavas.
