Police want to speak to this man in connection with a robbery at a petrol station which saw a female staff member knocked to the floor.

Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses to the robbery at the A6 Filling Station on the A6 at Rushden Road, Souldrop at 8.05pm on Tuesday, December 30.

A female employee was locking the store up and was leaving by the main entrance when a man barged into her and forced her back inside the shop, causing them both to fall inside the shop.

This caused the victim to hit her head and suffer grazing and bruising to her head and elbows.

The robber demanded the key to the safe and the woman was made to fill five Shell carrier bags full of cigarettes.

While he was making his demands, the offender also said: “Sorry I have got to do this but I have got to get my kids back”.

The offender made off with the cigarettes but no cash.

Detective Constable Jason Wheeler, who is investigating the incident, said: “This was a frightening experience for the victim and I would like to hear from anybody who may have information about this incident.

“Somebody knows who committed this crime and the offender needs to be caught.

“The female victim was injured by this offender and was badly shaken by the attack.

“If you know who this man is please tell us, you can call me in confidence on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.

“Alternatively you can contact the independent crime fighting charity, Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.”

The offender had pale blue eyes, about 5ft 8in and was of slim build. He wore a face covering, dark jogging bottoms and a grey jacket.
