Lidl staff threatened with a bike chain in theft at Bristol supermarket
Police have issued a CCTV image
Staff at a supermarket in Brislington were threatened with a metal bike chain when two thieves made off with food. The incident happened at Lidl on the Bath Road on May 18, at around 10.15am.
Police say two men went to walk out of the shop without paying for food - and when challenged by staff they made verbal threats before one threatened workers with the chain.
The pair then ran off.
Police are now issuing CCTV images of two males we want to talk to in connection with our investigation and ask anyone who knows who they are to please get in touch.
The first male is seen wearing a black cap, cream hoodie, grey tracksuit bottoms, grey trainers, glasses and has a grey rucksack. The other is wearing a dark grey zip-up hoodie, blue jeans, black trainers, glasses and has a black rucksack with him.
Anyone who can help the investigation should call 101 and quote reference number 5223115455.
