Police have released CCTV as part of an appeal to identify an armed robber who stole £150 form a bank in Broad Street.
The incident occurred in March with the suspect being aged between 30 and 40. The man approached the bank and peered through the door before returning wearing a balaclava and pulling a gun out of a blue plastic bag.
He was confronted by a member of the public who tried to restrain him, however after a brief scuffle, the suspect managed to escape.
He was wearing a grey hooded top with a cap, black gloves, a black satchel bag and dark trousers. He also wore ‘Nike’ trainers with a red tick.
Detective Constable Mike Bunn, of the Met’s Flying Squad said: “This was a brazen robbery on a busy high street which left members of staff at the branch terrified.
“The robber travelled to the bank on a men’s mountain bike and it is possible that he may live locally. I am urging anyone who recognises the man in the footage to contact us.”
