AN Asda worker had a bottle of alcohol thrown at them during a robbery. 

The woman was challenged by staff inside the store who suspected her of stealing the bottles, but she threw one of them towards a staff member. 

Police say the bottle missed the worker. 

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

Officers have released an image of a woman they would like to speak to following the incident at the supermarket in Station Road, Gillingham, on the afternoon of May 6.
