Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

CCTV images released in knifepoint robbery series inquiry

We’re releasing CCTV images of a man we need the public’s help to identify as part of an investigation into a series of knifepoint robberies.

Three robberies have taken place at travel agents in the South Gloucestershire area in the past few months which we’re treating as linked.

The robberies happened at stores on:

  • Regent Street, Kingswood at 2.15pm on 7 June
  • High Street, Thornbury at 5pm on 22 October
  • Downend Road, Downend at 3.15pm on 25 October

In all three incidents a man, who covered his face, threatened staff with a small knife before making off with cash.

In the Downend incident, the offender made off across some allotments before riding a bicycle through the Oldbury Court area.

We’d like to speak to the man in the image as we think he may have information which could assist our inquiry.

Anyone who recognises the man is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5219247579.

You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
