Witness appeal after robbery in Winsley

Alert message sent 26/05/2019 09:23:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


We are appealing for witnesses after a robbery at a shop in Winsley.

Two men entered the Co-op in Tyning Road at around 6.10pm on Friday (24/05/19) and threatened a member of staff behind the till.

They then fled the shop with cash and a quantity of tobacco, worth a combined total value of around £500, and we believe they then got into a small red car which was waiting in a nearby road.

Nobody was injured, but both the member of staff and some of the witness have been left shaken by what happened.

Det Sgt Adam Fleetwood-Brown, from Melksham CID, said: "Due to the time of day there were a number of witnesses in the area at the time who have spoken to police.

"They have told us that the two men had some kind of clothing covering their faces, and we believe they may have had an accomplice waiting outside in the car.

"We are now appealing for anyone who saw any suspicious activity in Winsley or Bradford on Avon on Friday to contact us. We are particularly interested in speaking to anyone who saw a small red car, believed to be a hatchback."

Anyone with information should contact Melksham CID on 101, quoting crime reference 54190050143. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
