Police have appealed to the public for help to identify a man following an armed robbery in Harrow.
Police were called at about 12:20pm on Monday, 30 January to a shop on St Anns Road in Harrow Town Centre.
On arrival, they were told that the suspect had posed as a customer before asking to look at a Rolex Submariner watch.
He jumped over the counter and threatened a member of staff with a handgun. The suspect stole the watch and ran away. The sales assistant was not injured.
Detectives have today (Tuesday 7 March) released CCTV images of the man they need to trace following the Harrow robbery.
Detective Constable Tom Grimshaw, said: “This was a very traumatic experience for the member of staff, who had a gun pointed at them.
“I would urge you to take a good look at the images and contact us if you know who he is. He was wearing a very distinctive ‘Royal Ascot’ baseball cap. Or have you been offered a Rolex at a reduced price?
“Please call us as a matter of urgency before he strikes again.”
