The man is described as black, about 6ft 1 inches tall, with a medium build. He was wearing a dark-coloured hooded tracksuit worn with the hood up and a face-covering underneath. He had a foreign-sounding accent and left the pub carrying a Nike shoe box.

Officers are appealing for information and anyone who was in the area on Sunday evening and may have seen any suspicious activity is asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101.
