Police investigating a robbery in Bletchingley have released CCTV video, and images, of a man they want to identify.
The incident took place on Tuesday last week (23 January), at around 8:15pm, at The Village Stores on the High Street.
DC Nicola Dell, who is investigating the case, said:
“The suspect, believed to be a man, entered the store and threatened the member of staff demanding cash before leaving towards Church Lane. He is described as holding what appeared to be a blue handgun wrapped in a bin bag.
The suspect is described as 5ft 4 inches tall, slim build, wearing blue jeans, white trainers and a dark blue jacket.
We are keen to identify the man from the CCTV images as this was a terrifying ordeal for the victim, who fortunately was not hurt.
If you know who this person could be, or you have any information which could help us, please contact us on 101, quoting crime reference number PR/45180008673 or by using https://report.police.uk.”
