Officers are appealing for the public’s help identifying these two people following a report of an attempted distraction theft in Mansfield.

The man and woman are sought in connection with an incident in Sainsbury’s car park in Nottingham Road on July 27, where efforts were made to distract a woman and rob her of her bank card.

CCTV checks also revealed evidence of a man watching the would-be victim entering a pin number and recording down the digits as she paid for her shopping at another supermarket.

Anyone who recognises either of these people or can help in any way is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
