Surrey Police has released a CCTV image of the knifepoint robbery which targeted the Co-op foodstore in Tattenham Corner last month.

The image features two heavily clothed men, one of whom appears to wield a large knife. Surrey Police said they would like to speak to as part of their investigations into the robbery.

Two suspects, who Surrey Police said were male and aged between 20-30, stole cash and cigarettes from the Co-op staff at knifepoint.

Surrey Police said: "Two men wearing balaclavas went to the Co-op in Tattenham Corner just before 10pm on 21 January and threatened staff with a knife before taking a significant amount of cash and a large quantity of cigarettes.

"The pair are thought to have left on foot towards Downland Way and Great Tattenhams. We're keen to speak to the men pictured as they may have information about the incident."

In their statement released with the image, Surrey Police also appealed for a witness believed to have seen the two men briefly before the robbery occurred.

The statement said: "We would also like to speak to someone who may have seen the suspects before they entered the shop. He is described as a man aged around 50 years, with black and grey hair. He was wearing a white shirt and a blue parka style jacket with an orange lining and a fur-lined hood, and was carrying a green carrier bag."

In the wake of the robbery the Comet spoke with Nick Harrison, the Epsom and Ewell ward councillor for the area.

Cllr Harrison said: "It is very concerning that this incident has occurred in what is normally a very safe area," adding that the attack posed "a danger to staff, shoppers and local residents."
