This man is being hunted after a Cheriton shop worker was threatened with what is believed to have been a gun.

A raider targeted the One Stop store, in Cheriton Road, after pretending to buy something at the till.

But he verbally threatened the shop assistant and showed him what could have been a firearm.

The man fled with an undisclosed amount of money before heading towards Folkestone town centre.

Now detectives have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to in connection with the raid on the convenience store.

It happened at about 9pm on Sunday, June 1, but details have only been released today.

The raider was wearing a black hooded jacket and black tracksuit trousers, with a white Adidas stripe down the leg. 

He is described as clean-shaven, stocky and with a deep voice in a "local accent".
