The force received a report on September 13 that a man had helped himself to several items from the Spar on Station Road in Bedlington at around 10.05am.

The same man then crossed paths with a woman carrying a seven-month-old baby near the post office and, in his haste to leave the area, struck the child and caused a facial injury.
