Police are releasing CCTV images following a robbery in Southend in December which they hope will help identify those responsible.
Two men entered Corks n Cans on Branksome Road shortly after 9pm on Saturday, December 29, selected two bottles of wine and took them to the counter.
As the sales assistant placed them in to a bag, one of the men pointed a silver handgun at her.
The woman continued putting the bottles in the bag through fear and gave the men the bag. They then walked out.
The assailants are described as white and in their late teens to mid-20s. The gunman is further described as being approximately 5ft 2ins tall and was wearing a black hooded top while his accomplice is approximately 5ft 6ins tall and was wearing a grey hooded top.
There were no customers in the shop at the time.
It is thought the two men also stole six cans of lager and hid them under their hooded tops.
Anyone with information in connection with this robbery or who recognises them men shown in the CCTV images is urged to contact detectives at Southend police station on 101.
