â€œI have reassured her that we will properly investigate this robbery and that we are confident we will be able to identify the criminal.
â€œHe is believed to be local to the area and he had what appeared to be a bite mark on his right cheek. Therefore Iâ€™m confident that someone will be able to tell me who it is.â€
