Surrey Police is appealing for witnesses after an attempted armed robbery in the post office on Weybourne Road, Farnham.

 

At around 12 noon today (Wednesday, 13 September) two men entered the post office demanding money. One was carrying a suspected firearm. When the post office worker refused to hand over any money, the men ran off on foot towards Farnham.

 

The men are described as wearing dark clothing, including hooded tops with the hoods up. The male with the firearm had his face covered, is of slim build and around 5 ft 10 ins tall. One of the suspects was wearing a white jumper or shirt around his waist. Their ages are unclear at this stage but they have been described to be in the region or 17-30-years-old.

 

Detective Sergeant Paul Warriner said: “Fortunately the suspects failed in their attempts to rob a local post office and no one was hurt.

 

“We’re keen to hear from anyone who might be able to help us identify the two men involved. If you have any information, please let us know by calling 101 or using report.police.uk and quote the reference number 45170100904.

 

"Similarly, anyone who was in the area at the time who has any Dashcam or mobile phone footage is asked to make contact with us.”

 

Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
