Witness appeal following attempted armed robbery in Litherland

MERSEYSIDE Police are appealing for witnesses following an attempted armed robbery at an off-licence in Litherland, on Sunday, 17 May 2015. Police Officers were called to Bargain Booze on Ennerdale Drive, at around 8.40pm, by a member of staff reporting that 3 males had entered the store, 1 of whom was armed with a hammer. 1 of the offenders then used the hammer to smash the security window and threaten staff before all of them ran off empty handed. No 1 was injured during the incident, but the people working at the store were left extremely upset and distressed by what had happened. A search of the area was carried out and CCTV opportunities are now being assessed.  Detective Constable Adam Dagnall from Sefton CID said:- "This was a frightening incident for the staff involved although thankfully no 1 was injured and the would be robbers were unable to take anything from the shop. We have been working hard with convenience stores and other retail outlets across Merseyside to crackdown on robberies and enhance security measures. I know people in Litherland will be angry that local stores are being targeted in this way and I want to reassure them we are doing everything we can to trace those responsible. We think there were three offenders, all of whom are described as in their teens and wearing black clothing with their faces covered. We believe they escaped from the store and headed onto Dunnings Bridge Road where we think they ran for some distance. I am convinced they will have been seen by lots of people, both people out walking and those in cars, and I would appeal to anyone who thinks they may witnessed a group of young men running along Dunnings Bridge Road at around 8.45pm last night to get in touch. I'd also urge anyone with information which could help our investigation to come forward as soon as possible."  People can call detectives in Sefton CID on:- 0151 777 3823 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.
