Police have released CCTV pictures of a man they want to speak to after an armed robbery where a crowbar was used to threaten shop workers.

It happened at the Spar shop in Hall Road in Oulton Broad around 8.15pm on Saturday night, 7th May 2011.

The male – thought to be in his mid teens to early 20s, white, around 5ft 7ins tall, of slim to medium build, wearing a grey coloured hooded top, grey bottoms, distinctive black and white trainers with white on top and mostly black at the sides, carrying a black rucksack style bag and with a scarf partially over his face – entered the store, threatened the man behind the counter with a crowbar and demanded he hand over cash.

The member of staff refused and chased the male out of the shop.

Nothing was stolen and no one was hurt.

Police are asking anyone who was in the area around this time or anyone who may recognise the offender to call Lowestoft CID on 01986 835300.
