A 43-year-old man has been arrested after an attempted robbery at a post office in Market Bosworth. During the raid a man entered the shop in Main Street, Market Bosworth, and pushed a 49-year-old woman backwards to prevent her from leaving. He threatened members of staff with what was believed to be a firearm and demanded money from behind the counter. However, the postmaster refused his demand and he struck the woman before leaving empty-handed. The victim received a minor cut during the incident and did not require medical treatment. No one else was injured. Detective Constable Rob Buckley said: "This was a deeply distressing incident for all those involved. Luckily, no one was seriously injured. "The suspect did threaten people within the shop with a firearm but, at this stage, we can't confirm whether the weapon was genuine. "We are in the process of taking statements from all those involved and studying CCTV footage." Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det Con Buckley on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
