THIS man is wanted for threatening a terrified pub worker – in a row over bar snacks.

The man became threatening and abusive towards a 46-year-old man who was working at the George and Dragon pub in Kingston Road, Buckland, Portsmouth, after staff refused to serve him complimentary bar snacks.

The victim was left fearing for his safety following the incident, which happened between 6.30pm and 6.40pm on February 22.

Now police have released this CCTV image of the suspect in the hope of bringing him to justice.

PC David Tester, investigating, is urging witnesses to come forward.

He said: ‘The male involved is alleged to have made some rather concerning threats over the seemingly trivial issue of complimentary bar snacks, causing the staff a genuine fear for their safety.

‘I would urge anyone who knows the male to come forward and identify him so that the matter can be dealt with appropriately.’

The suspect was black, 6ft and stocky.

He wore a black flat cap, a black jacket and a multi-coloured striped scarf.

Anyone with information is asked to call PC Tester on 101 quoting crime reference number 44120073774.
