Leicester shop robber fight CCTV released

Footage of a shop assistant wrestling with a robber in Leicester has been released by police.

The offender went into the BP Service Station in Hinckley Road and demanded money.

After attacking the member of staff, the suspect made off with cash on a bike towards Eastfield Road.

The incident happened in the early hours of 9 July but officers have published the pictures now in an attempt to find new witnesses.

The member of staff was not hurt but was left shaken.

Det Con Eliot Burgess said: "This was a distressing incident for the victim who tried to stop the suspect from stealing any items, but unfortunately after a struggle the suspect made off with the cash drawer.

"We would urge the public to have a look at the footage and contact us if they recognise anything about the suspect, maybe his clothing or voice."
