A MAN was foiled in his bid to hold-up a post office - then fled on a bicycle.
The young man walked into Marsden Post Office on Manchester Road at 3.10pm yesterday.
He was holding an object covered by a bag and demanded money.
But the postmaster refused to hand anything over and the would-be thief fled.
He was seen riding away on a black bike.
He is white, aged 18 to 20 and wore black clothes, along with a black hat or cap.
His face was covered with black material.
Anyone who saw the man or has any information should phone Pc Sally Carter at Huddersfield CID on 01484 436685.
