where robbers grabbed a gold chain from around the neck of a member of staff before stealing cash from the till and escaping

Police have released CCTV footage of a man they want to speak to regarding a robbery in sandwich chain, Subway. An AlertSystems spokesperson responds to the report.

CCTV footage of a man police want to speak to regarding a robbery has been released to the public. The incident occurred at sandwich chain, Subway, on December 28th in Coventry, where robbers grabbed a gold chain from around the neck of a member of staff before stealing cash from the till and escaping.

Police were called to the scene but by then the two men had disappeared. One man has already been charged with robbery and appeared in court in January, with a crown court date booked in for February 27th. Police are still searching for the other man and they have now published images captured by CCTV of someone they want to speak to.

“I am appealing to anyone who recognises the man in the image to call me or one of the team,” said detective constable Peter Waterman. “The shop assistant, who was on his own at the time, was unhurt but was left shaken by the ordeal.”

AlertSystems, providers of commercial surveillance systems for businesses up and down the country, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “Incidents such as this really are terrible, and with any luck a member of the public will be able to see this CCTV image of the unknown man and give police a clue as to his whereabouts.

“When it comes to keeping your business safe and secure, CCTV really is vital. Without it the police would have no clue regarding the man’s appearance and they wouldn’t be able to continue the investigation. If your business isn’t supported by a strong surveillance system then you really should consider having one installed.”

Offering professional service and a complete range of security services such as monitored alarm systems, Automatic Number Plate Recognition and Avigilon CCTV security systems, AlertSystems provides effective and reliable solutions to security problems.
