Man held after attempted robbery at Highbridge supermarket

A 22 year-old man has this week been charged with attempted robbery after an incident outside a Highbridge supermarket.

Police were called to the Asda store in Caxton Road at 9pm on Saturday (March 7th) after a 28-year-old woman was approached while withdrawing money from the cash machines, pictured here.

Police spokesman Steve Game told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The female victim was withdrawing cash from a machine when she was approached by a male."

A scuffle is then understood to have occurred, when the 22-year-old man attempted to steal a quantity of cash before making off.

Police from Burnham-On-Sea were quickly called to the scene and a man was held in connection with the incident.

Police spokesman Steve Game added: "Police arrested the man, who is from Highbridge, and later charged him with attempted robbery."
