Police appeal for clothing shop theft witnesses

News release mailed to this site from Herts Police.

DETECTIVES are appealing for witnesses or anyone with any information following a robbery at Tabrizi in High Street, Potters Bar, between 6pm and 6.15pm on Friday (February 25).

Six men entered the shop and forced two members of staff into the stock room at the back of the shop while they stole at least 30 men’s suits – worth about £7,500 in total and other clothing.

“The first two men spoke to one of the members of staff before the third, fourth, fifth and sixth offenders went into the shop and forced the members of staff into the stock room,” said Detective Constable Pete Ward from the Central Area Crime Unit. “They then made an untidy search of the shop before stealing the suits.”

He said: “The members of staff were tied up in the stock room but were fortunately uninjured although understandably very shaken. They managed to phone police after struggling to free themselves.

“Anyone who saw the men before, during or after the robbery or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area are asked to contact police.”

The first man is described as white, 6 ft 2, early to mid 20s, of slim build with a scar on his face and he had short shaven mousy hair. He was wearing a blue zip up top and blue jogging bottoms. The second man is described as white, 5 ft 5, with scars on his face, in his early to mid 20s, of slim build with short mousy cropped hair. He was wearing a tracksuit. The third offender is described as 5 ft 2, of dark European appearance, of medium build with stubble. He was wearing a hooded jacket and black gloves. The fourth offender is described as being 6ft, of mixed race, of medium build with short shaved hair and he was wearing a navy T-shirt and light coloured jeans.

Witnesses are asked to contact DC Ward on 01707 638234 or the Crime Desk on 01707 638102.
