Handgun and sword used in a shop robbery, in Southport


MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives have given the media CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to, following an armed robbery that took place at a shop in Southport. We are told that Officers were called to Freshway General Store, on Rufford Road, Southport, just before 7.30am, on Sunday, 18 June 2017, following reports that 2 men had entered the premises. It is believed that 1 of the men was armed with a sword and 1 was armed with a handgun. The men left the shop with a quantity of cash and cigarettes. We are also informed that the shop assistant had suffered an injury to their face during the incident. We are also aware that she has been left badly shaken up by their ordeal. An investigation is underway and detectives have issued images of a man, who they believe could assist with their enquiries. Anyone who recognises the man or has information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on:- 0151 777 3931/3823 or the Crimestoppers line anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
