Bingo Hall Armed Robber Update
Do you remember the story we brought you back in February?
Well, there has now been an update about the masked gunman that targeted a Birmingham bingo hall.
The man sought by police for the crime is also being wanted over a raid at a convenience store.
Officers investigating the theft of money from BJ’s Bingo Hall in Mackadown Lane, Kitts Green, back in February are now linking the suspect for this crime to another raid at the One Stop shop in Shirestone Road, Tile Cross earlier this month.
The man matched the description, manner and approach of the BJ’s Bingo suspect – about 5ft 5in tall, and at the bingo hall robbery was wearing a navy Nike hooded top with purple writing and dark coloured tracksuit bottoms.
The man wanted for the One Stop shop raid entered the premises on Sunday 15th March and demanded money, before escaping with a bundle of cash from the till.
PC Chris Hammond, from Stechford police station, said: “We have carried out numerous inquiries to try and identify the suspect, but as yet we have been unable to locate him.
“I am sure someone watching this CCTV will know who he is from the way he speaks and by what he is wearing. I would urge them to do the right thing and contact us.”
Anyone with information is being asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
