A CCTV image of a suspected robber who raided a shop in Northampton armed with a metal barbell pole has been released by Northamptonshire Police.
Officers are re-appealing for information about the robbery in which cash, alcohol and cigarettes were stolen after staff at the Little Billing Convenience Store, Little Billing, Northampton, were threatened.
The robbery took place on Saturday, January 4, between 6.55pm and 7.10pm, when two men, both carrying metal poles, entered the shop and threatened a member of staff, demanding money.
The robbers stole cash, lottery scratch cards, alcohol and cigarettes, dropping some of the property as they left the shop. It is believed they ran off in the direction of Glade Close.
The two men were both white and aged about 19-years-old. One of the men is described as being about 5ft 6in, with a slim/average build. He was wearing dark clothing and had a black scarf over his face.
The second man is described as being about 5ft 7in. He was wearing a dark hooded top and also had a dark scarf covering his face. Both men were carrying silver barbell poles.
The man in the photograph is wearing a distinctive top which detectives hope someone will recognise.
Anyone with information, or witnesses to the incident, are asked to contact Northamptonshire on 101. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
