Police launch urgent search for suspect after shopkeeper pepper sprayed during violent robbery
Police have launched an urgent search for a suspect - after a shopkeeper was pepper sprayed during a violent robbery
Shortly before 2pm on August 21, 2020, a man entered the Londis convenience store on Woodhouse Street, Woodhouse, and put packets of steak and jars of coffee in his jacket before leaving the shop.
When challenged outside by the owner and two members of staff, he sprayed them with a canister of pepper spray before running off, police said.
Officers had been pursuing specific lines of enquiry in relation to the incident, which occurred in August last year, but those enquiries have now concluded without identifying the suspect.
Anyone who recognises the man in the image is asked to contact PC 6671 Cavalier via 101 quoting crime reference 13200421660 or online via www.westyorkshire.police.uk/101livechat
