DETECTIVES are appealing for information and witnesses after an armed robbery at a petrol station in Culcheth on Wednesday evening, January 6.
At around 6.40pm a man entered the station on Warrington Road and ran towards a shop worker who was near to the till. It is believed the man was in possession of a hammer.
The man managed to grab the till and fled from the store.
He is described as being 6’, aged around his mid to late 20s, of medium build. At the time of the incident he was wearing a face covering, a black jacket, grey tracksuit pants and black boots and a pair of orange gloves.
The victim sustained minor injuries as a result of the incident.
Detectives are now appealing for anyone with information that could help with the investigation to contact Cheshire Police.
Detective Constable Joe Davies said: “This attack left the shop worker shaken and I’d like to reassure the public that we are doing all we can to find the person responsible.
“A number of inquiries are currently underway and we are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen something that didn’t look quite right around the Lodge Drive and Culcheth Hall Drive areas.
“I would also like to hear from anyone who may have captured dashcam or CCTV footage of the man after the incident, the same goes for anyone has any information on who is responsible.”
