Police in Lancashire have released some CCTV images of a man we want to speak to after an attempted armed robbery at a Preston City Centre convenience store.
The incident happened at around 2:35am yesterday morning at Mace Express on Friargate when a man entered the store, produced what is described as a handgun and threatened the lone shop worker to hand over cash.
The shop worker refused to hand over the cash, held up a stool and the offender then left empty handed.
DC Paul Gilfoyle from Preston CID said:
The offender is described as white, in his early twenties, around 5ft 8ins tall and of medium build. He was wearing sunglasses and a black hooded jacket and spoke with a local accent.
