A man armed with a firearm entered a shopping centre on Leisure Dr at about 8pm on January 28.

He threatened an employee in the video shop demanding cash.

Police said the store attendant handed over money before the man fled on foot.

No one was injured during the incident.

Detectives have now released CCTV footage of a man they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

He is depicted in the footage as being of Caucasian appearance, aged about 35 years, 168-173cm tall, and wearing a black t-shirt.
