Police hunt for wine store robber
Police are hunting for a man after an armed robbery on a Bristol shop.

He entered the food and wine store in Acacia Rd, Staple Hill at 2015 BST on 18 April and pointed a pistol at the worker.

The man demanded money from the till and made off with a quantity of cash. No shots were fired or anyone hurt.

Police describe the man as black, about 5'6", of medium build, aged 30-35, wearing a black woollen hat and scarf, a hooded-top and silvery trousers.

He also had what appeared to be fresh blood wound to left-hand side of his nose.

The man was carrying a black triangle-shaped rucksack and armed with black pistol with a brown handle.
