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.
