Police are appealing to the public to help trace a man following an attempted robbery at a convenience store in Hemel Hempstead. 

At around 4.30pm on February 21, a man walked into Cox’s Pond store on Vauxhall Road, holding what was reported to be a handgun. 

He demanded money from the two people working in the store at the time. A scuffle then ensued between the workers and the suspect, during which they managed to get the weapon from him. 

The suspect fled the scene, running out of the shop and turning right at the end of the car park.

Detectives investigating the attempted robbery have released a photo of a man they would like to trace. 

Detective constable Laura Brine, from the Hemel Hempstead Local Crime Unit, said: “We believe this man was in the area at the time of the incident and may have information that could help us with our enquiries.”

Anyone who recognises the man should contact DC Brine via email to, report information online at, speak to an operator in the Force Communications Room via their online web chat at or call the non-emergency number 101, quoting 41/16249/20.

Alternatively, you can stay 100% anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their untraceable online form at
