CCTV images released in bid to catch Bedford robber

CCTV Robbery Bedford 26 June

CCTV images of a man that police would like to speak to about a spate of Bedford robberies have been released.

The images are of a man who police believe is connected to a robbery last Wednesday (26 June) at about 6pm in an alleyway linking Bedford’s High Street and Howard Street.

The offender made off with cash his 14-year-old victim had just withdrawn from a nearby Natwest cash point.

Detective Constable Luke Williams, investigating, said: “We are keen to speak to the man pictured as we believe he might have information about this incident and would urge anyone with any information to come forward.”

The man has also been connected to a robbery earlier in the same day, where two teenage boys were threatened with a knife in Rothsay Gardens.

They managed to get away safely before the robber could take anything from them
