Do you recognise this man?

CCTV images of a man wanted in connection with two armed robbies has been released.

The suspect was caught on camera during the second of the two robberies at William Hill Bookmakers on Sewell Highway on Tuesday, September 25.

Two people went into the shop at around 8pm brandishing a weapon, believed to be a handgun, threatened staff and got away with a quantity of cash.

Detectives are linking the robbery to another earlier that day at around 3.45pm when two people robbed a man in the street.

Both were described as dark European and between 5ft 9ins and 6ft tall. One was wearing a dark coloured bomber jacket whilst the other was wearing a hooded top.

DC Ian Russell said: "These dangerous men should not be approached.

"I'm keen to hear from anyone who either recognises the man in the images or who saw what happened and hasn't yet spoken to us.

"No-one was seriously hurt but the victims have clearly been left very shaken by what happened and we need to find the people responsible."

Anyone with information about their identities should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
