A WOMAN'S scream foiled a raid on a supermarket.

A man entered Tesco in Long Lane, Dalton, at 9.45pm on Friday night and leapt over the customer service desk.

He demanded money from a woman member of staff and threatened her with a concealed weapon.

But she screamed and the startled raider ran out of the store, towards Tolson Crescent.

Supermarket staff chased him, but he got away.

Nothing was stolen.

The man is described as 6ft and slim.

He was wearing a long, dark jacket and his face was covered by a black mask.

Anyone with information should contact Huddersfield CID on 01484 436745.
