North Yorkshire Police issued a CCTV image appeal following an attempted robbery at a Harrogate jeweller. We have amended our coverage as the suspect has been arrested.

The force today said the incident, which happened at Ogden’s on James Street, took place at around 1.50pm.

The statement said a man entered the store and attempted to steal “two high-value watches”.

Officers asked people to come forward with information at the time.

Police added:

“A brave member of staff tackled the suspect who fled from the store, discarding the two watches as he went.

“A member of the public also found a discarded display in the street and carefully returned it to the shop. Our thanks go to them both for their quick thinking.

“Any witnesses to the incident and anyone who can help identify the man in the images, is asked to email Detective Sergeant Tom Barker at [email protected]. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their website.”
