Guard threatened in Nottingham Tesco robbery attempt

Police have appealed for witnesses to an attempted armed robbery at a Nottingham supermarket.

A security guard was delivering cash to the Tesco store, on Oakdale Road, Sneinton, when he was threatened by a man brandishing a baseball bat.

As the guard ran inside the shop the offender fled empty-handed and escaped in a waiting car which was parked in Swains Avenue.

Police said the victim was left shaken following Friday morning's incident.

The suspect is described as white, in his early 20s, of slim to medium build and about 5ft 5ins (1.65m) tall.
