Police are appealing for information after two men attempted to rob a shop in Wrexham.

It happened at AVS News on Norman Road, Hightown at around 7pm on Monday November 27.

Two men, including one with a knife, demanded money, but fled empty handed.

The suspects had their faces covered and were wearing hooded jackets. They made off on foot and were seen running in the direction of the Hightown barracks.

Thankfully no one was hurt during this incident, but it’s important we arrest these dangerous individuals.

One suspect is described as tall, in his 30’s, and of large build. He was wearing a black woolly jumper, a peaked cap and a fluorescent yellow jacket.

The other male is described as in his 20’s, slim and about 5ft 6ins tall. He had a moustache and was wearing a black hoody and black trousers.

We are keen to hear from any motorists who had their dashcam on and were in that area of Llay around the time of the incident to contact us on 101 quoting reference V157593.
