The robber attempted to drive into the Co-Op supermarket in Duston on his motorbike.

Remarkably though, a member of staff was standing in the doorway of the Co-Op in Main Road, Duston, which prevented the offender from entering the store.

The man riding the silver BMW motorbike threatened the shop worker and demanded money, however, this was refused and he drove off.

The incident took place on Thursday, April 27 at 10.20am, Northamptonshire Police have today revealed.
