Colchester: CCTV image of robbery suspect

Detectives have issued a CCTV image of a man they wish to trace in connection with an off-licence robbery in Colchester.

The incident happened at The Beer Tent shop in Barrack Street, shortly before 10pm on Friday, May 13, 2011.

A female member of staff was alone in the shop when she was approached by a man who threatened to assault her if she did not open the till.
