Police Release CCTV Footage After Honiton Robbery

Officers investigating a robbery in Honiton have released further CCTV from the offence.

A team of officers are involved in the investigation following the robbery which took place at Banwell Antiques, in Honiton on Saturday, March 22.

The incident took place as a female staff member, who was working alone, opened up the store at around 9am. The woman was grabbed from behind by the suspect before being tied up. Although not physically injured she was left very shaken by the incident.

The footage shows the moment the man entered the antique shop and grabbed the female staff member from behind.

Detective Inspector Charlie Craig, from the investigation team, said: "Although we have followed up a number of lines of enquiry, we still do not know who this man is.

"He may not live in Devon and Cornwall so we are urging people to share this footage with friends across the country, using social media, so we can find out who he is."

He is described as a white man, of slim build, unshaven, with short dark hair and is aged between 30 – 50 years. He was wearing a blue coat, blue denim jeans, black trainers, beige coloured flat cap and was carrying a blue rucksack and black holdall bag.

Police are appealing to anyone with information to contact them.
