Detectives are appealing for information following an armed robbery at a supermarket in Holt Park this morning.

At 6.14am today (Monday 18th September 2017) police received a report of a robbery at the ASDA store, on Holt Road in Holt Park.

Two men in balaclavas armed with crowbars forced entry through a door while the shop was closed and confronted staff. They made threats and stole a substantial amount of cash.

The men left the scene along with a third man who had been acting as a lookout.

They ran along a ginnel towards the High Farm public house and drove away in a white or light-coloured 4×4 vehicle.

Detective Inspector Susan MacLachlan, of Leeds District CID, said:

“This was a terrifying experience for the store staff but thankfully no-one was physically injured.

We are carrying out extensive enquiries to identify the suspects and would like to hear from anyone who saw them leaving the scene in this 4×4 vehicle.

We would also like information about anyone seen acting suspiciously in the area in the lead up to the incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Leeds District CID via 101 quoting crime number 13170430959 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
