CCTV tweed hold up#3

Police are still seeking the robber of a Banora Point video store despite releasing this clear CCTV still on Friday of a man they want to question over the incident.

About 8pm last Monday, 28 January, a man armed with a firearm entered a shopping centre on Leisure Drive, Banora Point.

He threatened an employee in one of the shops, demanding cash.

The store attendant handed over money before the man fled on foot.

He is depicted in the footage as being of Caucasian appearance, aged about 35 years, 168–173cm tall, and wearing a black t-shirt.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Details can also be provided confidentially via the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
