Following an attempted robbery in Kensington Park, Magor, Gwent Police would like to reassure the community that this was an isolated incident. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The offence happened at approximately 9:30pm on the 18th of September 2016 and the offender is being described as male around 6ft in height, aged in his twenties, wearing a dark coloured top and cap with light coloured trousers. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Local Inspector Phillip Morris said: ‘We would like reassure the community in Magor that this was an extremely unusual and isolated incident for the area and we haven’t received reports of similar incidents. At the moment our enquiries are on-going but if you do have any information I would strongly urge you to come forward. Uniformed officers will be patrolling the area during the evenings, to provide reassurance to the local community and to answer any questions or concerns people may have. The incident occurred in Greenmore Lane, which has no street lighting, it was extremely dark and I would advise that the community use routes that are well lit during the autumn and winter months. If anyone is concerned regarding any suspicious activity, please call on 101 or dial 999 in an emergency.’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
