An appeal for information has been made by Merseyside Police following a robbery in Haydock on Monday 28th April. Officers were called to the Co-op shop on West End Road at about 5.20pm after a report of two men entering the store and threatening staff to hand over money. The two offenders made off with a quantity of money in the direction of Park Street. Nobody was hurt during the incident.
A full investigation into the incident has been launched by detectives, with witnesses being spoken to and CCTV from the area being checked in an effort to identify who was responsible.
One of the offenders is believed to be about 20 years of age and had been wearing a dark hooded top and grey shorts. The second offender had been wearing a grey/blue coat, both offenders had Liverpool accents.
Detective Inspector Martin Earl said ‘We are determined to find the people responsible for this incident. A number of staff have been left really upset following their ordeal and I know the community will join with me in wanting to see the people who did this brought to justice. This is a busy area and I would appeal for anyone who might have seen two people acting suspiciously at around the time of the incident to call police. You might have some very important information that could help our enquiries.’
