Appeal: Attempted Robbery- Raylands Close, Leeds
Monday 3 September 2012
Police are appealing for information after an attempted robbery on female dog walker on Friday (31/9) evening.
The incident occurred around 5.20pm as the 38-year-old walked her dogs on a grassed area close to the junction of Raylands Close and Raylands Lane in south Leeds.
At that time she was approached by a white male wearing a grey hooded top and grey bottoms. He asked her if she had a mobile phone or any cash before making threats with what appeared to be a flick-style type knife. The female was able to run off with her dogs leaving the suspect to make off on foot in the direction of Clapgate Primary school.
Detective Inspector Sean Duggan, from City and Holbeck CID, said: "Incidents of this type are rare in the area and I would like to hear from anyone who was around Raylands Close/Raylands Lane at the time or who may have any information regarding the suspect.
"I would also ask anyone living nearby, who has their own CCTV cameras, to check any footage and contact police if they captured anything suspicious."
Anyone with information is asked to contact City and Holbeck CID via: 101 or by calling Crimestoppers, anonymously and in confidence, on: 0800 555 111.
