Help request to public following robbery at an Off Licence in Bootle

MERSEYSIDE Police, in Sefton, are appealing for information following a robbery, on Wednesday, 19 October 2016, at an off licence, in Bootle.

At about 6pm a man, believed to be armed with a handgun, walked into S&N News and General store on Knowsley Road, Bootle, and is believed to have hit the shopkeeper over the head with the weapon before emptying the till and escaping with a quantity of cash towards the park by Peel Road. Officers carried out an extensive search of the area, but were unable to trace the male.

The offender, who is described as being about 25 years of age, was wearing black tracksuit bottoms, a grey top, grey hooded jacket and a black and grey bandana.

Detective Sergeant Andy Wright, said:- "This was a very frightening incident for the staff and customers who were working in the store at the time. The shopkeeper, who suffered a head injury, was extremely shaken up by his ordeal. I would like to reassure people who live locally that we are doing everything we can to trace the offender. Shopkeepers provide an invaluable service in our local communities and I would urge anyone who lives locally and has any information which could help us with our inquiries to call us."  

Officers will be examining CCTV from the area in a bid to identify the offender, this week.

Anyone with information can contact detectives at Sefton CID on:- 0151 777 3046, or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111.
