Officers are keen to speak with anyone who can assist in identifying the person concerned or who may have information regarding this crime.

The thief is described as white, between 16 and 30 years of age, of slim-to-medium build, and 5ft 8in to 6ft in height. They were wearing dark clothing including a black hoodie with the hood up and white toggles untied.

Detective Inspector Graeme Hendry said: “This robbery was terrifying for the female staff attendant at the garage.

“Our officers have been making extensive enquiries to find the person responsible. The response from people in Denny has been magnificent and I am grateful to them however we have still to identify the person.

“I urge anyone who was in the area of Glasgow Road between 9.20-10 p.m. on October 21, to contact police immediately.

“I am sure that someone knows the identity of the person and that they too will be alarmed by the trauma this crime caused the staff at the garage.”
