Police in Lowestoft have arrested two people in connection with an attempted armed robbery at the Co-Operative food store at Westwood Avenue.
The attempted robbery happened on May 27 when a man went into the store, approached a female member of staff behind the counter and demanded money from the till.
When told the till could not be opened he produced what appeared to be a pistol.
The man was then confronted by two other members of staff and fled empty handed.

They were bailed to return to the Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre on October 22.
