This is the thug police want to speak to in connection with a terrifying gun point robbery on a 60-year-old man in West Hampstead.
Police believe the man (pictured) was one of the two robbers who pulled up next to the victim in a brown car in Lithos Road in the middle of the morning and asked if he wanted to buy a cheap camera.
But the 60-year-old was then dragged into the vehicle and had a gun pointed at him before being driven to a nearby cash point. He was forced to withdraw money from two cash machines before set free when the car became stuck in traffic on Finchley Road.
Detective Constable Mark Knollys said: "This was a cowardly crime that has left the victim badly shaken and afraid to go outside. I would like to hear from anyone that witnessed any part of this incident or has been approached in similar circumstances and offered electrical goods for sale."
