Police investigating an attempted robbery in St Albans have released CCTV images of a male they would like to identify as part of their enquiries.
It happened at Oaklands Stores, Hatfield Road, St Albans, at just after 8.30pm on Thursday, September 5.
A male entered the store, shouted at the shopkeeper to give him money and brandished a weapon.
No money was handed over and the male left.
Detective constable Jess Berg, of the St Albans Local Crime Unit, said: “Thankfully nobody was injured during this incident and nothing was taken, however the victim has, understandably, been left shaken by this.
“We are trying to identify the male pictured in the CCTV images. While the pictures do not show much of the suspect’s face, they do show the clothing, his build and the shape of the distinctive weapon being held.
“If you think you recognise this person please get in touch with us.”
