A MAN was threatened with physical violence at his home address and two days later in a Co-op store.

Police want to identify a man they wish to speak to in connection with the two public order offences.

They say the victim, who is in his 30s, was initially "harassed and threatened" in Wedlands, Taunton, last Saturday (August 1) at about 3pm.

The same man made further threat in the Co-op on nearby Cheddon Road on Monday (August 3) in the evening.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: "On both occasions the offender acted in a threatening, abusive manner towards the victim and shouted that they wanted to use physical violence towards him.

"The victim was unharmed, but was left distressed by the events.

"We’re releasing two images of the man we’d like to speak to in connection with these incidents."

The man they believe may have information to assist their investigation is described as white, and aged between 20 and 40 with red hair.

If you can help police identify him, contact 101 quoting reference 5220172030.
