Appeal for witnesses following robbery in Southampton
Main article content
Did you witness a robbery at One Stop in Exford Avenue, Southampton, at around 9.30pm yesterday (15 February)?
A man wearing a blue puffer jacket, a balaclava and armed with a knife – as shown in the CCTV images - entered the store and threatened the 18-year-old cashier with the weapon before breaking into the till and taking the contents.
The cash or items stolen are currently unknown.
It is believed the man then met another man nearby in Exford Avenue and the pair left the scene on a moped.
The other man is described as White, in his early twenties, 6ft tall, wearing a black rain coat, black trousers, black shoes and a balaclava.
Inspector Brian Goodall from the Southampton North Neighbourhoods Policing Team said: “Thankfully no-one was injured but the staff members working yesterday evening are understandably shaken by what happened.
“We are working hard to identify the two men involved and remain at the scene to conduct further forensic enquiries.
“If you have any footage of the incident, saw anything suspicious in the area at the time or know who was responsible, please get in touch.”
