Police have released CCTV images and are appealing for public assistance after an attempted armed robbery at Lakemba last month, NSW Police say.
About 8pm on Thursday 9 August 2018, a man entered a betting agency on Haldon Street, holding a suspicious package.
The man approached a female employee and handed her a hand-written note.
The employee activated an alarm and the man fled.
An investigation into the incident was launched and detectives have now released CCTV images of a man they believe may be able to assist with inquiries.
The man depicted is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his 30s, 180cm tall, of a medium build, and with a beard.
He is depicted in the image wearing a dark-coloured jacket, denim jeans, black shoes, a cap and black sunglasses.
The man was last seen walking towards Croydon Street.
