Man wanted over knifepoint robberies at travel agents

POLICE want to trace this man over a series of knifepoint robberies at travel agents.

Detectives are linking three raids on travel agents in the past few months, in Downend, Kingswood and Thornbury.

After the Downend raid the suspect made off across the nearby Dial Lane allotments before he was seen cycling through the Oldbury Court area.

In all three incidents a man with his face covered threatened staff with a small knife before making off with cash.

The first robbery happened in Regent Street, Kingswood on June 7 at 2.15pm.

The second was at a travel agent in Thornbury High Street on October 22 at 5pm.

The third was in Downend Road, Downend on October 25 at 3.15pm.


Appealing for information today, an Avon and Somerset police spokesperson said: "We’d like to speak to the man in the image as we think he may have information which could assist our inquiry."

Anyone who recognises him should call 101 and quote the crime reference number 5219 247 579.
