Police appeal for information following armed robbery in High Wycombe

| May 17, 2015


At around 10.30pm on Saturday 16th May 2015 two men entered Today’s Off Licence in Roberts Road and demanded cash from the shop worker.

The money was then grabbed from the till and the offenders then left the scene in a red Toyota sports car.

One of the men was brandishing what is thought to be a firearm however no one was injured during the incident.

Both offenders were wearing white ‘crime scene investigator’ suits and had their faces covered.

The red Toyota, partial registration M33, was seen in the area after the incident travelling at high speed and was pursued by police. The vehicle stopped and a man ran away from the car.

A 36 year old man from High Wycombe was arrested shortly afterwards and is currently in police custody.

Thames Valley Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information which could help with their enquiries.

Det Insp Nick Bell from Local CID said: ‘Fortunately the two people in the shop at the time of this incident were not injured or even touched by the offenders. However, this was undoubtedly a frightening experience for them. I would urge anyone who has any information about the offence to come forward and speak to police.

Officers are in the area making enquiries today and there are extra patrols taking place in order to reassure local residents. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to speak to officers or call 101 for advice.

Anyone with any information that can help the police with their enquiries are advised to please contact the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
