CCTV appeal after attempted robbery at Harrogate jewellers

Police are appealing for information following a report of an attempted robbery at a jewellers' store in Harrogate.

Detectives have released CCTV images of a man they'd like to speak with after the incident earlier this week.

The robbery was reported on Tuesday (9th April) at around 1.50pm.

A man entered Ogden’s store on James Street and attempted to steal two high-value watches.

A police spokesperson said:

"A brave member of staff tackled the suspect who fled from the store, discarding the two watches as he went.

"A member of the public also found a discarded display in the street and carefully returned it to the shop. Our thanks go to them both for their quick thinking.

"Any witnesses to the incident and anyone who can help identify the man in the images, is asked to email Detective Sergeant Tom Barker at tom.barker@northyorkshire.police.uk."

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
