A MAN who donned a straw hat and sunglasses in a bid to disguise himself while carrying out a knife point raid in a Stourbridge petrol station supermarket is still being sought by police.

Officers released an appeal last month to find two men who carried out a knife point raid in the M&S Food section of the BP garage in Hagley Road in Stourbridge.

In CCTV footage the pair could be seen to approach the checkouts with pizzas, beer and wine, but instead of paying, one produced a large kitchen knife − with the other revealing a meat cleaver − and demanded cash from the tills.

The men bagged cash, along with the alcohol and food, before making off on foot.

Police have today (Thursday, October 3) revealed that one man has been arrested in connection with the incident.

They have now renewed their appeal to find the other man captured on CCTV.

Speaking last month, Detective Sergeant Mark Dent, said: “The men act in a very blasé manner collecting items from the shelves and approaching the tills − but as soon as they get to the checkouts both produce knives and demand staff put money in their bag.

“There were several shoppers in the store along with staff but thankfully no-one was injured.

“Anyone who believes it’s OK to brandish knives in public needs to be caught quickly. I’d ask anyone who thinks they recognise the men − or anyone who was in the area at the time and remembers seeing the men − to get in touch."
