A thief who threatened a woman working in an Edinburgh video store with a broken bottle is being sought by police.

The man fled the Blockbuster on Great Junction Street with a three figure sum of cash at 21:00 on Thursday.

The man was white, in his 30s, about 6ft tall and of large build. He was wearing a black beanie hat, a black baggy sports jacket, blue jeans and spoke with a local accent.

Police are appealing for witnesses.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: "This was a very frightening experience for the store assistant and we are keen to hear from anyone who can help us identify this man."
