Police investigating an attempted armed robbery at a bookmakers have released a CCTV image of a man they want to trace.

A man armed with a small kitchen knife threatened a member of staff at William Hill in Wellfield Road, Roath, Cardiff, at around 09:00 GMT on 8 December.

He demanded money but the employee refused to hand anything over and locked himself into a room. The suspect then left the premises.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.

Anyone who recognises the man in the picture - or the individual himself - is asked to contact Cardiff CID on 02920 527 420 or independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
