Police are appealing for witnesses and information after an attempted armed robbery at a restaurant in Nottingham.
A man, armed with a hammer, entered the Millers Barn Beefeater in Millennium Way West, Cinderhill, at about 1.10am yesterday (Tuesday 19 June 2018).
He threatened staff and demanded money before making his way to the reception of the adjoining Premier Inn hotel where he again threatened staff before fleeing empty handed.
No-one was injured.
The suspect is black, aged in his 30s and is of medium build. He was wearing black clothing.
Detectives are linking this incident with another robbery at the same Premier Inn hotel which happened at about 2am on Thursday 14 June. A man armed with a hammer jumped over the counter and stole a small amount of cash from the till before leaving. No-one was injured.
Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 36 of 19 June 2018, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
