Merseyside Police issue an appeal for information after an armed robbery in Southport took place

MERSEYSIDE Police detectives have launched an investigation and are appealing for any information about an armed robbery that took place at a convenience store, in Southport, on 10 August 2017.

We are told that Officers responded to a call that a robbery was in progress, at around 9.50pm, in Food N Go. It is believed that 3 males entered the shop, on High Park Street, on the Junction of Roe Lane and stolen cigarettes from over the counter. Members of staff were pushed into the rear storeroom, but not injured. A crowbar was left at the scene and has since been recovered for forensic enquiries.

Witness and CCTV enquiries are ongoing and Police Detectives would like to speak to anyone who saw any males acting suspiciously around High Park Street, before or after 9.50pm, to get in touch. The men are believed to have driven off in a red hatchback car down Old Park Lane.

The men are described as white, possibly teenagers or early 20's, slim build, wearing stockings dark clothing and hoodies. 1 of the men was wearing a blue coat. 1 of the men is also described as having a Lancashire accent.

Detective Inspector Paul Nilsen said:- "These types of incidents are thankfully rare in the area and I would appeal to anyone with information to contact us immediately, to identify remove these people from the streets. Thankfully the members of staff were not injured but they are understandably extremely shaken and to be threatened and grabbed in such a way is despicable and desperate behaviour. The victims are being supported by officers and I would urge anyone with any information, however small, to call us as it may be vital for our investigation. I want to assure all residents and businesses that we will do everything possible to identify the offenders and bring them to justice, and ensure that Southport continues to be a safe place to live, work and visit."

Anyone with information is asked to call:- 101. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously and for free on:- 0800 555 111 or go online.
