A WALTON pub was raided by a balaclava-clad crook on Sunday.

The burglar broke into the Bath House pub in Princes Esplanade by forcing a window open at about 2.30am.

He took cash from the till and fruit machines, as well as swiping jewellery from the office.

The suspect wore a balaclava at intervals during the raid but his face was caught by CCTV cameras.

He is described as a white male wearing a long sleeved dark tracksuit top with darker shoulder and elbow pads and two fluorescent stripes on each shoulder.

He was also wearing dark jogging bottoms with a single stripe down each leg and dark trainers with light coloured laces.

It is thought the man left the building at about 5am and ran away into Standley Road.

Anyone with information should contact Det Con Luke Howard on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
