A man told a petrol station worker in Sudbury that he had a weapon as he demanded they hand over cash, police have revealed.

But when the worker at the BP garage in Northern Road refused and hit the panic alarm the man left empty handed.

The suspect walked out of the shop, across the forecourt and in the direction of Waldingfield Road.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident, which occurred at around 6.20pm on Monday, April 15, and have said although reference was made to a weapon, it was not actually seen.

The suspect is described as white, aged in his 20s, of medium build and unshaven. He was wearing a grey hooded top with the hood up.
