We want to speak to this man in connection with an attempted robbery. Do you know him?

We are appealing for information following an attempted robbery at a shop on Cardiff Road in Newport on Thursday 13th July 2017.

A man entered the store just after 7pm armed with a small knife and had made threats towards a member of staff. He ran out of the store before taking anything.  He ran down Mendalgief Road, through the carpark behind Lloyds the pharmacy and towards the Pill Harriers Rugby Club.  He was carrying a black carrier bag  on his back with a red  draw string across his body.

We would like to speak to the man in the CCTV image as we believe he may be able to help us in our enquiries.  If anyone recognises this man, please contact us on 101 quoting log 498 13/7/2017
