CCTV footage shows Shopkeeper overpowering armed robber

Police have released CCTV footage to appeal for information after an attempted robbery at a shop in Walsall on Christmas eve.

It happened at the Spend n Save store on Pleck Road in the Pleck area of Walsall just before 7pm.

The footage shows the gunman being overpowered and wrestled out of the door by the shopkeeper and his assistant.

As the footage shows the store's owner and his assistant managed to overpower the assailant and wrestle him out of the shop in a matter of seconds.

We know the struggle continued outside and believe a number of passing vehicles slowed down and perhaps even stopped to witness the scuffle - I am urging these people to get in touch.”
