Police are appealing to a woman who reported a crime to a security guard to contact them.

At about 5.20pm last Wednesday, a woman told one of the security officers at Tesco in Clay Cross that someone had attempted to rob her at the town’s bus station.

A short time later,a 20-year-old man who was stood on a pathway near Tesco was approached by three youths who unsuccesfully tried to steal his phone.

An hour later, three youths broke into a property on Church Lane, North Wingfield, and made off with money and jewellery. Police believe the incidents may be linked. Call officers on 101.
