TWO men fled empty handed after an attempted robbery at a Rhyl bookmakers on Sunday.

A female member of staff was in the process of shutting Corbetts Sports Bookmakers on Wellington Road on January, 26 at 6pm when she was confronted by two males, who demanded she went back into the shop with them.

After refusing to comply the two suspects fled empty handed across Wellington Road and down Westbourne Avenue.

The men are described as being 5’6” to 5’8” tall, and of slim build, wearing grey hooded tops with the hoods up and had scarves covering their lower faces.

DC Phil Williams said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have information relating to the two men.”
