Detectives investigating a robbery at a bookmakers in Bootle have released a CCTV photograph of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident. Just after 8.30pm on Sunday, 31 March, a man walked in to Ladbrokes bookmakers on The Esplanade Bootle Strand.
He tried to climb over the top of a glass security counter to gain access to a staff only area. He threatened staff and then escaped with a large quantity of cash.
The offender is described as white, mid 20s, 5ft 7in and chubby build. He ran on to Stanley Road and then turned towards Marsh Lane.
Anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV picture, or who has any information which could help the police with their inquiries is asked to contact Sefton CID on 0151 777 3011, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
