North Wales Police are renewing their appeal for witnesses to come forward after an attempted robbery in Conwy Road, Colwyn Bay last weekend. At approximately 11am Sunday 22nd January 2017 a local woman walking along Conwy Road was accosted by two men close to Barclays Bank. They attempted to steal some belongings from her but she bravely fought them off and they fled the scene empty handed, one in the direction of the ‘west end’.
District Inspector Kelly Isaacs at Llandudno Police Station said “This was clearly a distressing situation for the lady and she showed great courage fighting off her attackers and so for her sake, and the rest of the rest of the community we need to identify and arrest those involved as soon as possible. If you were in the area of Barclays or Royal Bank of Scotland, Conwy Road at the time and witnessed any suspicious behaviour, or indeed know who is responsible, please contact Police immediately.”
“We continue to work closely with local Councillors and others within the community to provide reassurance and step up visible patrols in the area. This will continue until the perpetrators are caught but in the meantime I’d advise vigilance around cash machines and if you see any suspicious behaviour report it immediately”
Investigating officers are looking for two men in connection with this incident. One was on a push bike and left the scene in the direction of the West End, Colwyn Bay. He is aged in his late teens, slim build wearing a black hooded top riding a mountain bike. The second man is described as scruffy and aged in his 50’s or 60’s.
