POLICE investigating a series of armed robberies, including one in Shoreham, have released CCTV footage.

Detectives hope that someone may recognise the suspects from their voices.

The raids occurred between November 28 and December 16 in Shoreham, Portslade and Hangleton, and the CCTV shows the suspects entering the off licence in Queen’s Parade, Hangleton, around 10pm on December 16.

In each of the incidents, up to three suspects entered the locations armed with knives or other weapons, threatened or assaulted staff and demanded cash and cigarettes.

Detective Sergeant Chris Lane said: “Although the video does not clearly show the faces of those who entered the shop in Hangleton, their voices can be heard on the soundtrack.

“One of them repeatedly refers to the other as ‘S’ and we would like to hear from anyone who recognises them from their voices.”

In the Shoreham robbery on Wednesday, December 10, two women were attacked and hundreds of pounds stolen as they were closing up for the night.

One of the women was struck in the face as two teenagers in balaclavas forced their way into the One Stop shop in Buckingham Road at 11pm.

As the two members of staff, both aged in their 30s, were closing the door, they were pushed back into the shop and ordered to hand over cash.

Both were threatened and one was struck in the face before several hundreds of pounds were stolen.
