Police are appealing for witnesses after an attempted robbery in Bidford-on-Avon.
The incident took place at around 8pm last night (Friday, 15 February) when a man entered the Esso Petrol Station on High Street.
He threatened staff and demanded money before running out of the shop empty handed. He headed along the Pleck in the direction of the boatyard, and it is believed he then went down an alleyway and onto the High Street.
The man is described as white, in his 20s, and is believed to have been wearing a black puffa jacket with a white hood up and a scarf covering his face. He is also believed to have spoken with an Irish accent.
Detective Sergeant Gavin Lambert from Warwickshire Police said: "Thankfully no one was hurt as a result of this incident but this was a frightening ordeal for staff at the petrol station.
"We are therefore appealing to anyone who may have seen anything or has any information that could help us with our investigation."
Anyone with information is asked to call Warwickshire Police on 101, quoting incident number WK-20190215-0399 of 15 February.
