A CCTV image of a man police would like to speak to in connection with an attempted knifepoint robbery of a NISA store in Northampton has been released by police.

The attempted robbery happened at the store in Chalcombe Avenue, Kingsthorpe, Northampton, on Monday, June 22 at about 9pm.

Officers have released a CCTV image of a man seen loitering in front of the store who they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

During the attempted robbery, a staff member was threatened with a knife and the robber demanded cash. He fled empty-handed into Chalcombe Avenue.

He is described as a white man of about 5ft 7in with a medium build, in his late teens to early twenties with short dark hair and dark clothing.

Officers are keen to speak to a group of teenage girls who were seen talking to a man outside the shop at around the same time and urge them to get in touch.
