The hunt for knife-wielding thug continues following an attempted robbery at a Dundee shop.
Police are searching for a man who threatened a shopkeeper with a knife at General Stores on Dundonald Street at around 12.15pm on Wednesday.
The man demanded money from the till before the shop worker, believed to be in his 50s, struggled with the intruder which led out onto the street.
The worker was shocked but uninjured.
The culprit is then understood to have fled in the direction of Court Street.
Furthering their appeal for information Detective Sergeant Kevin Mollison issued a description of a man they want to trace.
He said: “We are keen to trace a man who is described as 5ft 6in tall, wearing a dark hooded top, grey jogging bottoms, with dark trainers and dark balaclava.
“Officers are currently reviewing CCTV footage of the surrounding area and I would ask members of the public who have private CCTV to come forward.
“I would also appeal to drivers who may have been the area and have dashcams fitted to their vehicles to also come forward. You might have captured information that may be useful to us.”
