Police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to talk to in connection with an armed robbery at a jeweller's shop.

The incident happened at Valley Jewellers on High Street in Clydach, near Swansea, at around 15:30 BST last Wednesday.

A man entered the store carrying a hunting knife and threatened two members of staff.

He then left the scene with cash from the till. No one was hurt.

He has been described as white, in his mid-20s, approximately 6ft 1in (1.8m) tall, of skinny build with a scruffy ginger goatee beard.

The man was also wearing half-frame sunglasses, a grey coloured hooded top, black shiny tracksuit trousers and white trainers.

The knife was approximately 15cm (6in) long.

Det Insp Mark Kavanagh, from Neath CID, said: "It was a very warm and sunny afternoon when people would have been out and about picking children up from school.

"Anyone quickly walking in the area at this time wearing a hooded top over his head may very well have stood out."

Anyone with information is asked to call Neath CID on 01639 640204 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
