POLICE have released images of two men they are trying to trace following an attempted armed robbery.

The incident took place at commercial premises in Fraisthorpe Mead, Fagley, Bradford, on Thursday, May 4, at about 8.30pm.

Two males demanded the owners of the premises hand over cash, and one of the suspects threatened male and female members of staff with a hammer, while the other waited outside.

The victims managed to press a panic alarm which deterred the suspects, who left the scene empty-handed.

Detective Constable Cressida Jewell, of Bradford District CID, said: "This was a terrifying incident for the two victims and our enquiries remain ongoing.

"We would like to speak to the two people pictured in connection with this robbery.

"I would ask for anyone who has any information on this incident or recognises the two men pictured to please get in touch with police."

Anyone with information should contact Bradford CID on 101, quoting crime reference 13170201091.
