Do you recognise the men from these CCTV images? We need to identify them in connection with a robbery in Knaphill
On Saturday 9 June, we received reports of a robbery at the Co-Op shop on Victoria Road, Knaphill. We would like to identify the men from the CCTV images after three men entered the shop shortly before 5.30am and forced staff into the back of the store.
It is believed that the men left the store through the fire exit that leads onto Inkerman Road.
Detective Constable Richard Pegden, who is investigating this incident, said: “This was one of the worst possible scenarios for the two staff members to experience. When they entered the store to start their normal shift, they were greeted by three masked men running towards them.
“Their courage is a huge testament to them, and we will do everything we can to bring these men to justice. I would urge anyone with information about the men in these images, or the incident to contact us. I would like to remind shop staff to always put their personal safety first.
“We would also like to identify the driver of a black saloon which drove along Victoria Road, towards Inkerman Road around 5.26am. If you were driving in the area, or even if your car was parked nearby, please review your dashcam footage and if you have any information please come forward.”
The three suspects are described as:
- Suspect one – Male, black, aged approximately 30, around 5 ft. 9 inches tall, wearing a black thigh length coat, with a hood pulled up.
- Suspect two – Male, black, aged approximately 35 to 40-years-old, around 6 ft. tall, wearing a dark knee length jacket and blue jeans, with a hood pulled up.
- Suspect three – Male, black, aged approximately 25 to 30-years-old, around 5 ft. 8 inches tall, wearing dark waist length coat and a hood.
There were no weapons seen and the staff escaped unhurt.
