Police have released CCTV footage of a man who tried to rob an off licence in Mansfield.
A man went into Patel's in Park Road, armed with what police believe to have been a gun. It happened at around 9:00pm on Saturday 8 February.
No one was injured. Staff in the shop were threatened but the man left the scene empty handed.
The man is described as white, around 5ft 8ins tall, of slim build, and wore grey jogging bottoms, a grey or black hooded jumper and a padded sleeveless jacket. He also wore a scarf over his face.
DC Joanne Leason said: “Although this man’s face is covered, someone might recognise what he’s wearing, his mannerisms or even how he walks. This was a terrifying ordeal for the person who was threatened so if anyone has any information please let us know.”
Mansfield's Paralympic champion Sam Hynd has announced his plans to retire from swimming.
Hynd won a gold and bronze at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games and also picked up a bronze medal at the London 2012 Paralympics.
His gold in the S8 400m Freestyle at Beijing 2008 saw him break the world record - which still stands today.
On his retirement, the 22 year-old said:
"I just felt it was time for a change and a new challenge in my life. I have been competing internationally for almost ten years and I knew I needed a new focus.
“I have loved swimming. It has been my life for so long and brought me so much. I have great friends and I have travelled the world and I have some memories that I will never forget.
“Winning gold in Beijing will be something that will stay with me forever."
