Appeal for Information After a Robbery, Scunthorpe

November 22, 2012, 4:11 pm

Police in North Lincolnshire are investigating an incident which happened at around 13:15hrs on Wednesday 21 November on Quebec Road in Scunthorpe.

It was reported that two men entered the address and are alleged to have assaulted a male occupant and stolen a small amount of cash. He did not sustain any serious injuries.

An armed response unit was deployed to the address as it was reported to police that the men are believed to have been in possession of a firearm and a knife. The weapons were not used in the alleged assault and an ambulance has not been requested.

The offenders are described as both wearing dark clothing and balaclavas covering their faces. Both men are thought to have been between 5ft 9ins and 5ft 11ins tall and of a slim build.

The road was initially closed off between Sunningdale and Hurst Lane as a safety precaution and reopened a short time later.

The police helicopter assisted officers on the ground to locate the possible offenders.

Detective Sergeant Sarah Petrow of the Crime Team in North Lincolnshire said: “Incidents such as this, in North Lincolnshire are very rare and I would like to reassure the public that police are doing all they can to catch the people responsible.

“I am asking for anyone who may have seen two men acting in a suspicious manner, in the location of Quebec Road at around 1300hrs on Wednesday 21 November, to come forward. This incident could have been more serious than it was and thankfully nobody was injured. It is for that reason that anyone who may know who these two men are, needs to call police immediately.”
