Just after midday on Friday 14 December 2018, a man walked into a bank on Riseley Street Applecross with an umbrella open over his head and a mask covering his face.
He approached the teller and made a demand for cash and produced a metal pole. The teller retreated from the counter and the man walked out of the premises, still with the umbrella open above his head. He was unsuccessful in obtaining any cash.
The man was last seen walking south on Riseley Street towards Willcock Street.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The man is described as: Thin build, around 183cm tall wearing a light coloured jacket, dark long pants and white runners. He was in possession of a dark coloured umbrella, an orange bag and a metal pole.
