A bizarre CCTV image has been released of a hooded man police want to find in connection with a robbery at a shop in Hull.

The offender walked into Bootleggers on St George’s Road with another male around 7.15pm on Wednesday, January 3 wearing a distinctive jacket with goggles fitted into the hood.

Officers said that other male kept watch at the door while the hooded man threatened the shopkeeper and demanded money. They both fled with cash towards Arthur Street.

The culprit wearing the hood has been described as around 5ft 11ins and of medium build. He spoke with a non-English accent.

The man at the door was shorter and was wearing a "light coloured" beanie hat.

Anyone who saw the pair or know who they are asked to call Humberside Police 101, quoting log 498 of January 3.
