Police in Luton have released CCTV images of a man they need to speak to in connection with a knife point robbery which happened on the evening of Sunday April 11th.

The incident happened at Corals Betting Shop in Dallow Road, Luton at 7pm as an employee was leaving the shop. The victim was pulled in to a waiting grey Vauxhall Astra car (new shape) and forced to give security information about the shop to the offenders before being driven to Portland Road where he was released without harm.

The officer in charge of this investigation, Detective Constable Jon Wheeler, is keen to speak to anyone who can help trace the man shown in the attached pictures who is wearing a distinctive black hat with a white pattern on it.

DC Wheeler said: “I hope that by releasing these images someone will be able to identify this person from the clothing he was wearing at the time of the offence and I would reassure anyone who has information about this offence that they can speak to the police, in complete confidence.”

Anyone with information about this crime can contact DC Wheeler at Luton CID, on 01582 394262, or text 07786 200011, or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111
