CCTV of a man pointing a handgun at a shop worker in Shoreham has been released by police investigating an armed robbery last Friday (May, 15).

Officers said they shared the images to help investigations into the incident at the Tesco Express on Upper Shoreham Road, at 6.27am that morning.

A man entered the shop with a silver handgun, then threatened staff before taking cash from the till.

He then left, heading along Eastern Avenue.

According to police, the footage was released to help identify the person shown on screen.

Detective Sergeant Andy Ricks said:

“This was a terrifying incident, and we are seeking the public’s help in identifying the man in the CCTV.

“I am hoping that someone may recognise the distinctive beanie hat or the green jacket worn by the suspect.”

Two men aged 30 and 38, and both from Shoreham, were arrested on suspicion of robbery and have been released on bail until June 12.
