Detectives investigating the attempted robbery of a petrol station at Springfield on Wednesday night have released footage of a man who may be able to assist with their investigations.

Shortly after 11pm a man entered the Main St business and approached the counter. The man then grabbed the arm a 41-year-old male attendant and demanded cash.

The employee quickly closed the cash register draw and the man fled empty handed, except for grabbing some items from a shelf next to the door.

The man - who is described as African in appearance and around 170cms tall - was last seen heading into nearby parkland.

No one was physically injured and police investigations are continuing.
