CCTV to help ID Melbourne station gunman August 29, 2010

Security camera footage holds the key to police arresting a gunman filmed raiding a till at a Melbourne underground train station.

The man, aged in 30s, was caught on CCTV hanging around the customer service office of the Melbourne Central station for about 20 minutes before 10pm (AEST) on Saturday.

When two Metro Trains staff leave the area, the robber is seen entering the office, stealing cash from the till.

Transit police Senior Constable Nova Graham on Sunday said it was a brazen act during a busy time at the station.

"There's some pretty good CCTV footage so we're just relying on the public to contact Crime Stoppers and hopefully help us identify this male," she said.

While the gunman is clearly seen on the station's CCTV, he was not picked up in the viewing catchment of Melbourne's Safe City cameras - designed to film people in the city's crime hotspots in a bid to tackle crime.

Police cordoned off the area and trains were delayed while officers searched for the man.

He's described as Caucasian, aged about 30, 182cm tall, with red-blonde shoulder length hair and short cropped beard. He was wearing a green windcheater and cargo pants.
