Drone search fails to find knife-wielding man after attempted post office robbery
A large-scale police hunt has failed to find a knife-wielding man following an attempted robbery at a Suffolk post office.
The man entered the Post Office in Low Street in Hoxne around 11.20am, demanding money from the cashier while brandishing a knife.
The worker activated the store’s panic alarm before the man ran away across a local field, towards the B1118.
No money was handed over and no one was harmed during the incident.
Police carried out a “large-scale” search in an attempt to locate the man – including the use of a drone – but were unable to find him.
