Police are hunting for a man who robbed a York supermarket at knifepoint today (Sunday).
It happened at around 9.45am at the Costcutter on Wains Grove, Dringhouses.
A man entered the store and threatened a staff member while holding a knife. He then stole cash from the till and a bottle of vodka.
He then left the store and rode off on a silver coloured pushbike in the direction of Chaloners Road.
The man is described as
- in his thirties
- and wearing a black face covering
- dark coloured clothing and a baseball cap.
Detectives are appealing for anyone who recognises the person in the CCTV image to contact them, as they believe they may hold important information.
Detective Sergeant Mike Holden from the York and Selby Investigation Hub said:“We realise the CCTV image may not be of the best quality, but we’re hoping it jogs a witness’s memory, who may hold that vital piece of information which would enable us identify this individual.
“We’d also like to speak to anyone else who was in the area at the time of the incident, who may have seen someone matching the description either enter the store or leave the area on a bike.
“Similarly, any local residents who captured CCTV or doorbell footage, or motorists who may have dashcam footage of any suspicious activity in the area are also asked to make contact with police.”
