Police seek carrier bag on head robber

A man who robbed a shop with a plastic carrier bag covering his head is being sought by police in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.

At approximately 8.40am on Friday, May 10 a man entered the Day One store with a white ‘Londis’ plastic bag over his head and walked behind the counter.

He brandished a knife and asked the member of staff for money. He then removed money from the till and made off . The staff member was not injured during the incident.

DC Paula Mowbray from the Local Crime Unit said: “It is quite unusual for a robbery to be committed where the suspect uses a carrier bag as a means to attempt to conceal their identity. We would like to speak with the man pictured as he may be able to assist our enquiries. I would also like to hear from anyone who may recognise him.”
