Detectives investigating a knife-point robbery at a shop in Lordswood have released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to.
On February 22 at around 9pm, the suspect entered the Co-op in Kestrel Road and bought a lottery scratch card.
As a member of staff closed the till, the suspect pulled out a large knife, described as meat cleaver, from the waistband of his trousers.
Demanding money, he leaned over the counter and brandished the weapon at the terrified cashier.
He passed him a bag and ordered him to fill it with cash, before fleeing the store with the money.
The suspect is described as a white, unshaven and scruffy with black or brown short hair. He was wearing a black jumper and cream or white trainers.
Detective Sergeant Lee Neiles said: “This was a terrifying robbery that was over in a matter of seconds, carried out by a suspect who is potentially very dangerous.
"We would like to speak to the man shown in the CCTV images in connection with this incident and would urge anyone who may recognise him to call us immediately.”
Anyone with information should call 01634 792333, quoting reference XY/006642/14 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
