Carrying a clear plastic bag and wearing a black sleeveless jacket, distinctive green hoodie, and green trousers with black boots – a staff member was then threatened as a man rifled through the shelves.

Cash, cigarettes, and alcohol were stolen from the shop and the staff member was left unharmed but shaken and scared following the incident.

Detective Constable Chris Black, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We’re hoping someone may have been in the area at the time who could help us with our investigations.

“The staff member wasn’t physically injured but no one should ever go into work and be threatened while they’re simply just doing their job and left emotionally affected by being threatened.

“If you did notice anything no matter how trivial or small you think your information is – please do get in touch with us.”

Anyone with any information or who was in the area at the time is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 306 of 16 July 2023, or make an anonymous report to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
