WINSLEY NW —  Sunday 1st September 2019

 A) Armed Robbery at Village Store

As many of you will be aware, there has been another armed robbery at the Central Store in Tyning Road. I now have details:

At around 12.50 pm last Sunday (25th August) a man entered the store, produced a knife and demanded money, which he was given. He is described as a white male with black hair, 5′ 8″ tall and of thin build. He had a dark goatee beard and a thinning moustache. He was wearing a black rain jacket which was shiny in patches and came down to his hips. Police are appealing for witnesses. Please call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and quote incident number 54190084302.

B) Nuisance ‘phone calls

Usually I only deal with incidents specifically affecting Winsley and the immediate area. However, considerable concern has been expressed to me recently regarding nuisance ‘phone calls, especially those making a threat of some kind, for example to cut off the internet connection. I can only advise ignoring all such calls. It could also be helpful to reassure any residents who might be vulnerable to such threats or especially worried about them.
