Police investigating an armed robbery at a store in Rednal in July have released a CCTV image in the hope of identifying the assailant.

The man, armed with a handgun, entered the Spar in Edgewood Road just before 10pm on the 23rd July and threatened staff and customers, forcing two staff members and two customers into an office area.

The man stole cash before making off on foot.

He is described as white, aged between 20-45, 6’2-3, wearing a black balaclava, black padded hooded jacket, jeans, white trainers and wore a black sports bag across his body and distinctive orange and white gloves.

DC Michelle Beasley from Birmingham’s acquisitive crime team, said: “This was a frightening attack for the staff and customers in the shop and we are anxious to trace the person responsible. If anyone recognises him, they should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”

    • Officers usually have good reason for withholding images – they generally follow other lines of enquiry first, which is why it is usually some time before they are released.

  1. Well looking at that image above,you would have to be the world’s most intelligent person,to guess who that is..
    Maybe it’s the same person who keeps attacking the shop keepers in arden Rd Frankley.
    I’ve lost count how many times those shops have been turned over.

  2. So to summarise …they have good reason to withhold images but not always and sometimes follow ‘other’ lines of enquiries first instead of the actual lines of enquiry.
    Which is why it can take ‘some time’ (days-months?)to get round to release images.
