Police have released CCTV footage of two male suspects armed with a crossbow, wanted in connection with a robbery in Thornton Heath.
The robbery took place in a shop in Thornton Heath High Street at around 8:25 pm on March 2, when it was left briefly unattended by the manager.
The two men are seen entering the store with an armed crossbow and placing it on the counter as they steal four mobile phones from the display.
Detective Constable Christine Moorhouse, from Croydon’s Burglary Squad, said: “One of the suspects appears to have a loaded crossbow as they go into the shop, so it is concerning that somebody has this weapon and is carrying it around in public like this.”
“We are keen to hear any information about who these people are, so please contact immediately if you know anything.”
The men reportedly made their way in the direction of Grange Park after the robbery.
Police have asked anyone with information regarding the robbery to contact the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555 111.
