Robberies can be opportunistic or planned but will always be shocking for the staff involved.
(PRWEB UK) 24 April 2013
Police have released CCTV footage of a shopkeeper attempting to fight off a thief at his store in Greater Manchester.
The footage shows the thief buying Tic Tacs and chocolate before making an attempt to steal from the open till. Once the owner realises what’s happening, the owner hits the thief multiple times before wrestling the thief when he attempts to escape through the door.
The thief got away with some of the money, however the CCTV footage shows a clear image of the thief, who made no attempt to conceal his face during the crime and now police are appealing for him to be identified.
A spokesperson from AlertSystems said:
"The presence of CCTV in this shop has allowed for the ability to produce a clear picture to release to the public and appeal for his arrest."
“Robberies can be opportunistic or planned but will always be shocking for the staff involved. Being prepared is vital and the installation of CCTV and Monitored Alarm Systems allows for the best protection and security.
