CCTV images released following reports of an attempted robbery at a jewellers

MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives have issued CCTV images of 2 males, following reports of an attempted robbery at a jewellers, in Southport, on Wednesday, 31 May 2017, at around 9.35am.  We are told that 2 males had entered Prestige Diamonds, on Lord Street, by Costa Coffee, and the shops staff were concerned about the behaviour of them.  The staff then activated a fogging device and we are told that an unknown substance was then sprayed in the shop and the 2 then left the shop. It is not believed anything was taken. Following the incident a member of staff was taken to Hospital as a precaution, sue to a substance being reported to have been sprayed. The staff member was later allowed home, with sore eyes, but no permanent damage. Detectives have issued the CCTV stills of 2 males who they believe could help them with their enquiries.

Detective Inspector Robbie Moss said:- "We would ask anyone who recognises either of the 2 men, or the men themselves, to come forward, as we believe they may have information which could help with our enquiries. I would also continue to appeal for anyone who was in the vicinity of Lord Street, who may have seen anything suspicious, to contact us. It would have been busy in the area at the time and members of the public may have seen the 2 men either close to the shop prior to the incident or leaving the area afterwards."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on:- 0151 777 3847 or the Crimestoppers line anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
