Detectives release CCTV after shopkeeper attacked

Detectives investigating an attack on a shopkeeper have released CCTV images of a group of young people they would like to speak to.

The victim was punched in the face and kicked during the robbery at the Athishaya Store, in Ladybrook Place, Ladybrook Lane, Mansfield.

He was set upon after attempting to stop a youth from stealing vape pens and e-cigarette items from behind the counter.

Officers are now seeking to identify the individuals pictured after the incident, which took place at about 6pm on 15 July 2022.

Detective Constable Holly Cotter, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a frightening experience for the victim and we are determined to track down the people responsible as quickly as possible.

“Shopkeepers and retail staff should not have to live in fear of violence and we will not tolerate attacks upon them.

“As part of our investigation, we are now in a position to release these images of individuals who we think could help us get to the bottom of what happened.

“It is important anyone who recognises them or has any other relevant information, or has CCTV, dash-cam or mobile phone footage that could assist us comes forward.”

Anyone with information is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 670 of 15 July 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
