A manhunt has been launched for a robber who has held up a bank in Newquay.
He threatened staff and escaped with the cash on Tuesday evening.
It was just before 5pm, as Nat West on Bank Street was preparing to close, that he walked in.
He approached a cashier and told them that he had a weapon.
The spotty man in his twenties grabbed money and ran off up an alleyway towards Manor Road.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The male is described as a white male, spotty complexion, 5’8 tall, medium build aged 20 to 30.
"At the time he was wearing a dark green jacket, with a white motif on the left chest area, dark coloured trousers, dark coloured trainers with white stripes on the side and a beige coloured baseball cap.
"The male was carrying a two handled squared woven bag with green writing on."
They want to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time who might have seen something.
They have released CCTV images of the man they are hunting.
