Shop staff were forced to activate a panic alarm after a robber wearing a ski mask attempted to raid the store.

The incident happened at around 10.20pm at a store on Highroad Well Lane, when a man entered the shop, approached two members of staff and demanded money from the till.

The staff refused to open the till and activated a panic alarm.

The man fled the scene in a dark coloured vehicle which was parked across the road. It’s thought he made off in the direction of Moor End Road.

The suspect is described as a mixed race male, around 6ft 6 to 6ft 7 tall, wearing a ski mask, black coat, black jogging bottoms and black trainers. 

Anyone who has any information about the incident or saw the man or the vehicle is asked to contact Calderdale CID via 101 quoting reference 1756 of 11th October.
