Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a robbery at a premises in York, in which the suspect used a highly distinctive bag.
At about 9.45pm on Tuesday 14 March 2023, a male suspect entered the House of Trembling Madness on Stonegate. He had a distinct Yorkshire accent, and blue eyes, but otherwise completely covered his face.
He threatened staff with a broken bottle while demanding cash and cigarettes – then stole cigarettes including rare packets of ‘Pueblo Classic’ brand, using a ‘Peppa Pig’ bag for life. No cash was taken.
The suspect arrived and made off on a pedal cycle.
Officers are urging members of the public to contact them with any information that could assist the investigation. They particularly want to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time, or may have unexpectedly been offered cigarettes for sale since the robbery.
If you can assist, please call North Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting reference 12230046468 or email [email protected]
