Detective Sergeant Sam Stanway of Swansea CID said: “At the time of the incident the store was busy with customers and Carmarthen Road is one of the main arterial roads in the city so there is a strong chance both incidents were witnessed.

“We want to hear from anyone who may have seen either, or both, of the incidents as they unfolded.”
