Police have appealed for assistance in tracing a man wanted in connection with a robbery in Stamford's High Street in April.

Lincolnshire police released images and CCTV footage from the incident saying officers were renewing their request for information relating to the identity of the suspect.

"We are appealing for help in identifying this man in connection with an investigation into a robbery at the BetFred betting office, on High Street, Stamford," a police spokesperson said.

The images and footage relate to an incident on Saturday, April 7, when a man entered the betting shop armed with a hammer at around 9.30pm.

"He approached the till but was pushed away by the cashier," said the spokesperson.

"Eventually the man took out a hammer which was hidden in his clothing and climbed over the counter.

"He gained access to the till and removed a sum of money."

Investigating Officer, DC Daniel Hunt, CID Grantham, said: "We are asking anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV, or knows anything about this incident, to come forward.

"The offender went to great lengths to receive what was in the end a small sum of money.

"We are asking for your help to make sure the offender in this case is put before the courts."
