THIS is the terrifying moment a cash courier begged for his life when masked thugs point a loaded gun at his head during an armed robbery.
In the footage, the security guard can be seen staring down the barrel of handgun in Salford on Monday afternoon.
Moments later the gun was fired into the air as the two yobs run off with the empty cash box in a purple VW Golf.
The vehicle was later found burned out in another part of the suburb.
The courier was unharmed in the robbery that happened outside a Barclays bank.
Greater Manchester Police have released the distressing footage and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
Sergeant Karl Dalton of GMP’s Salford District said: “As the footage shows – this was a terrifying ordeal to live through for the cash-in-transit courier.
“Thanks in part to his remarkably calm-handling of the situation, he was left unharmed and despite the psychological impact of crimes like this, he is recovering well.
“The footage we have released is very clear. While the men have their faces covered, we’re confident that someone may recognise them.
