Police have released CCTV images of a robbery in Burley.
Shortly after 7.30am on Saturday, September 26, three masked men entered the One Stop convenience store, in Burley Road, Burley, and threatened staff and assaulted a 69-year-old male customer.
They stole cash from the till and took cigarettes and bottles of spirits before running off in the direction of Argie Avenue.
Detective Constable Steve Rochnia, of Leeds District CID, said:
“This was a frightening experience for the victims and we urgently need to identify the people responsible. Although their faces are masked, someone may recognise them from their clothing.
“We would like hear from anyone who may have seen the suspects in the area around the time of the offence or who has any information that could assist the investigation.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Rochnia at Elland Road via 101 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
If the Police have ‘released’ CCTV FOOTAGE they have done so in the hope the general public will view it & find it helpful in indentifying the perps. So embed it in the article, yes?
Hi David, thanks for your comment. It would probably be more acurate to say they’ve released images of CCTV footage rather than the actual footage. We’ll amend the copy appropriately.
