Armed robbery at Londis Store, Waterloo

MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives are appealing for information after an armed robbery in Waterloo, on Friday, 17 November 2017, at around 6.40pm. We are told that Police received a call from a member of staff, at the Londis Store, on St John's Road, Waterloo, that around 8 males had entered the location and made threats to staff. The group made demands for money and a quantity of cash and cigarettes was taken. Nobody was injured in the incident.

The the 8 male offenders are described were all, but 1 wearing facial coverings, all were wearing tracksuits, with 1 in possession of a weapon described as a pocket knife and possibly another male also holding a knife. It is believed that the males left on foot in the direction of Lyra Road.

Forensic and CCTV enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances and identify those responsible.

Chief Inspector Dave Westby said:- "This was a cowardly attack on people going about their business in the community. The members of staff were thankfully unhurt but understandably visibly shaken to be threatened in this way. I would appeal to anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area yesterday to contact us immediately. There may be members of the public who were passing in their vehicles and recorded dash cam footage of males close to the shop or surrounding area, and any piece of information or footage, however small, may be vital for our investigation. I want to reassure all residents and businesses that incidents like this are rare and we will do everything possible to identify the offenders and bring them to justice, and ensure that Waterloo 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 online.

Appeal for witnesses Adam Ellison Murder

MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of Adam Ellison, that happened on Saturday, 4 November 2017, are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward. 

We are told that Adam was reported to have been walking along a pedestrianised area, in Market Place, Prescot, at 12.40am, on Saturday, 4 November 2017, with friends, when he became involved in an argument with people on a motorbike. During the incident he was stabbed in the neck with an unknown weapon. He was taken to Hospital for surgery, but sadly passed away that morning.

Detectives are still looking to trace the bike, believed to be a green Kawasaki KX85 Big Wheel, or anyone who may have seen it being ridden around the Prescot either before or after Adam was attacked. Officers also want to speak to three females who it is believed were approached in the area by males on a similar bike on the same evening.

They are also keen to speak to anyone who was in the Old Mill Public House, on Mill Street, in Prescot, between 10pm and closing time, on the evening of Friday, 3 November 2017, as it is believed they could also assist with the investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector John Middleton said:- "We are currently examining a number of lines of enquiry, but would continue to appeal for people to come forward with any information they may have.  Adam's family deserve to have the answers to what happened to Adam that night. Any bit of information may prove to be vital to helping us get those answers. The bike was very distinctive and I am sure that somebody would recognise it or has seen it been ridden around the Prescot area in the past few weeks and months. We also know that the Old Mill Public House would have been really busy on that Friday night. People who were in the pub may have information which could assist us and I would ask them to get in touch."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police's Major Crime Unit on:- 0151 777 8618 or the Crimestoppers line anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
