Officers are issuing an image of a woman they are looking to identify following a robbery at a supermarket in Gillingham.

At around 3.15pm on Monday 6 May 2024 a woman stole a number of bottles of alcohol from the Asda store in Station Road. When she was challenged by staff inside the store, she threw one of the bottles toward a staff member, but it did not make contact.

She was challenged again by staff outside the store and threatened them before making off from the scene.

Police Constable Lily Cambridge-King, of Dorset Police, said: “We take reports of violence toward retail staff very seriously and we are carrying out a full investigation into this matter.

“I am now in a position to issue an image of a woman we are looking to identify as part of our ongoing enquiries, and I would urge anyone who recognises her to please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55240067144. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
