Police have released CCTV footage of an armed robber threatening a female cashier in Birmingham, in the hope that a member of the public will come forward to help identify the offender.
As part of the attempted robbery, which took place at Eurochange in Kings Heath High Street around 5.20pm on Saturday 28 February, the man walked up to the cashier and aimed a black handgun at her before demanding money.
The offender, described as an Asian male, is believed to have gotten cold feet and proceeded to run out of the shop empty handed.
The man, estimated to be in his early twenties, is around 5ft 7in to 5ft 8in tall, of slim build, fairly light skinned, clean shaven, with dark brown eyes, wearing a hoodie with the hood up.
