Police are releasing an image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with an attempted robbery in Middlesbrough.

The incident happened just after 6am on Monday 23 June at Premier Stores on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough.

A man entered the store and threatened the store owner with a knife and demanded money. He was challenged and ran away empty handed, crossing Cargo Fleet Lane, initially towards Pallister Avenue though he then continued along Cargo Fleet and crossed back over the road on to Cranmore Road.

A number of people are known to have been in the area at the time of the incident.

The perpetrator is described as white, aged in his late teens, 5'10” to 6 feet tall and wore a royal blue hooded jacket with distinctive white triangles at the top of both arms near to the shoulder. He wore the hood up with sunglasses in an attempt to conceal his identity. He is believed to have been holding a can of alcohol moments before entering the shop.

Anyone who may have seen the incident or the man before or after the incident took place is asked to contact DC Kevin Carter on the non-emergency 101 number or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
