Police are continuing to appeal for information following an attempted robbery at an Aberdeen shop.
Officers were made aware of an incident at McColl’s on Hayton Road at around 10.55am on Saturday involving a man in his 30s to 40s who was in possession of a mountain bike.
DC Nicky Clark, who is leading inquiries, said: “Thankfully nothing was taken nor was anyone injured, however the incident would have been extremely distressing for those involved.
“The man in question was in possession of a black and yellow mountain bike which he left on in the direction of Tillydrone Housing Office at Formartine Road.
“I would ask anyone who saw a person fitting this description and where they went after this to please get in touch as soon as possible as you may have information which could assist. We understand he may have been wearing a black winter-style thick jacket with a brown furry trim round the hood, a grey hooded top, light blue jeans and black boots/shoes.
“We are pursuing a number of lines of inquiry already and I would like to thank those who have already provided information. To those who have yet to speak to police but think they could help, contact 101 quoting ref. no. 1489 of Oct 6. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
