Attempted robbery in Virginia Street, Southport

MERSEYSIDE Police are appealing for information after an attempted robbery that took place, in Southport, on Wednesday, 12 October 2016. At around 7.20pm, a call was received stating that a masked male had entered a shop on Virginia Street, in possession of a gun and made threats towards a customer, before making off empty handed. CCTV and witness enquiries are ongoing. The male is described as white, 14 to 15 years old, 5ft 10in, wearing a red or pink sports style hooded jacket, what has been described as a Spiderman mask, and dark bottoms and trainers. The gun is described as a BB style handgun, possibly an imitation weapon.

Detective Inspector Robbie Moss from Sefton CID said:- "Those in the shop were unhurt but understandably distressed to be threatened with what had the appearance of a firearm, regardless of whether it was real or fake. I would appeal to anyone in the Virginia Street area around 7.20pm who saw the offence or a masked male acting suspiciously is urged to contact police, as any detail could be key to our investigation. We have spoken with the owners and staff to offer reassurance but I want to assure all businesses that we will do everything possible to identify this offender and bring him to justice, and ensure Sefton is a safe place to live, work and visit."

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Sefton CID on:- 0151 777 3844, call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
