Police have released CCTV stills of two men they want to talk to after a shop worker was threatened with a sharp implement as he tried to stop them stealing wine. Two men went into the Co-op on Romsey Road, Shirley, Southampton and tried to make off without paying for four wine boxes. When they were stopped by the shop worker one of them threatened to stab him with a small, thin sharp metal object that is described as looking like a knitting needle. The men then cycled off from the store with the wine towards Tebourba Way.
