Can you help us trace a man who tried to rob an Alfreton bank?

Posted on 30th January 2017

We’re appealing for help to trace a would-be bank robber who tried to steal money from Lloyds Bank in Alfreton.

At about 3.20pm last Friday (January 27) a man walked into the bank on High Street and handed a note to the cashier. He left empty-handed shortly afterwards when the cashier raised the alarm.

Did you see the suspect? He’s been described as young, of mixed heritage and about five feet tall. He was wearing a blue hoodie with a scarf across the bottom of his face.

He went into the bank through the side entrance and left by the front door.
