The incident took place at True Crime Museum in White Rock about 7 p.m. on Sunday June 14th. The footage shows the suspect struggling to open the door for several minutes. He uses his feet and a hatchet to break open the door. Before leaving the scene, he fills his bag with electronic items.
The suspect smashed his way in through a rear door leading into a pub and was confronted by a female member of staff inside. The man forced the 61-year-old woman to the ground, grabbed her by the hair, and dragged her outside the pub before threatening her with the hatchet, forcing her to hand over more than Â£100.
A reward for information leading to the conviction of the man responsible is also being offered by the owner of the pub.Â Anyone with information should email [email protected] quoting serial 1415 of 14/06, or call 101.
