Detectives in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward following a robbery in the town – with an e-fit of the offender being released.

The incident happened at 4.50pm on Friday 26 April 2013 at Morlands locksmiths on Charminster Road in Charminster.

The offender entered the store and threatened a man in his 60s with a broken green bottle while demanding money. He then ran out of the store and went down an alleyway leading to Luckham Road.

Nothing was stolen and no one was injured.

Detective Constable Kate Dennis, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said: “This was a very frightening incident for the victim.

“I am able to release an e-fit of the man that I wish to speak with. Anyone with information or who recognises him is asked to come forward as soon as possible.

“I would also urge the man pictured to make contact with Dorset Police.”

The offender is described as white, of slim build and in his 30s. He was wearing an off-white coloured fleece top and a dark coloured baseball cap.
