CCTV appeal following robbery in Bournemouth

Alert message sent 03/06/2020 11:26:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers investigating a robbery in Bournemouth are issuing CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to.

 At around 4.10pm on Wednesday 20 May 2020 a man entered Poundland at the Mallard Road retail park and was seen to select a number of household items and place them in a rucksack. A member of staff challenged him and asked him to put the items back.
 The offender then became verbally abusive and threatened to stab the victim with a needle, which he said was in his bag. He then left the store without paying for the items.

 Police Sergeant Steve Boston, of Dorset Police, said: “We are continuing to make enquiries into this incident and I am now in a position to release CCTV images of a man I would like to speak to. 

“I appreciate the images are not of the best quality but I am hoping that someone may recognise the man pictured.
