"However, the store owners challenged the man, forced him out of the shop and locked the door.

“Officers want to identify the man in the image and believe he may have information which could help their investigation.

"Although the image does not show his face, officers are hoping that someone may recognise the man by his clothing — a green hooded top, dark blue jeans, and black trainers. He is also described as white, about 6ft 2in and slim.”

Call police on 101 using incident number 22000282196.
