UPDATE: Gardai are investigating attempted robbery at Co Leitrim supermarket earlier this evening

A Mohill supermarket was targeted in an attempted robbery earlier this afternoon (June 30, 2017).

According to local gardai, a man entered Baxter's Centra at around 3pm this afternoon. He was wearing a covering over his face and head in a bid to conceal his identity.

The man approached a member of staff and demanded money and fled the scene a short time later, empty handed. No one was injured in the incident.

Gardai told the Leitrim Observer that the man fled on foot towards the Main Street area of Mohill.
