This in from Crime Stoppers:

ACT Policing has released a CCTV image of an alleged offender from an aggravated robbery at the Hawker shops last week, (Wednesday December 1).

The CCTV clearly shows one of the offender’s distinctive gait in which he appears to have a partial disability to his left leg. Police believe this may help to identify the offender.

About 11.10pm, a 36-year-old man was leaving the Rocksalt restaurant when he was approached by three unknown men. One of the men was armed with a baseball bat and another with a firearm.

The three male offenders forced the man back in the restaurant, and demanded he open the safe. He complied with their demands, and handed over a sum of cash to the offenders.

The male offenders were last seen leaving the location on foot in the direction of Belconnen Way.

The male victim did not sustain any injuries during the robbery.

The three male offenders are described as Caucasian, aged between 16-19 years old, with slim builds. They were wearing dark coloured clothing, hooded jumpers and bandannas covering the lower half of their faces.

Anyone who was in the area of the Hawker shops around the time of the incident or who may be able to identify the person in the image are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

If it looks natural enough, using a limp is a really effective misdirection tool to escape accurate public descriptions. Considering his face is mostly unrecognisable in the pic, it’s probably effective on CCTV in this case too.

Maybe Kevin Spacey could get away with doing this (faking a limp), but this guy? Not so sure. Looks like he’s using most of his brain power just to stand upright. But if he does have a real limp let’s hope it’s nothing trivial (sorry, feeling nasty this morning).
