Grampian Police are investigating a robbery which occurred at a Fraserburgh supermarket recently.

The incident happened at around 5:35pm on Monday November 5 at Farmfoods, High Street.

The Fraserburgh Herald understands that a male entered the store and presented a chisel, before making off with a low three-figure quantity of cash. No one was injured in the incident.

The male responsible was described as white, slim or average build, in his 30s, slightly shorter than six feet in height and wearing a blue hooded top with a white scarf wrapped around his head.

PC McEwan, of Fraserburgh Police Office, said: “We are keen to trace anyone who may have been in the shop just before or just after the robbery and may have seen anyone matching the description or acting suspiciously. This has been quite a distressing event for the staff.”

Alan Fakley, who is Store Manager at Farmfoods, was the member of staff who served the robber. Commenting, he said: “The robber wanted money out of the till. He had a chisel and his face was covered. He then ran out of the shop.”

The Herald contacted Farmfoods Ltd about the incident but they declined to comment.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or who may have seen someone matching this description in the area should contact Grampian Police on 0845 600 5700 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
