Merseyside Police is appealing for information after an armed robbery at a shop in Melling.
At around 5.15pm on Wednesday (June 22) , a call was made to police stating that two men had entered Melling Hair Studio on Waddicar Lane, in possession of two bladed weapons. The men are believed to have stolen money from the till before leaving the shop and making off in a white car, possibly a Vauxhall Zafira.
The men are described as white, in their early 20s, with scarves covering their faces, hoods up and wearing dark clothes. House to house and forensic enquiries are ongoing in the area.
Detective Sergeant John Fitzgerald from Sefton CID said: “This was a shocking incident carried out during broad daylight. Although it was extremely distressing for staff, thankfully nobody was injured, and extensive enquiries are underway to identify the offenders.
“Given the time of day, we are hopeful that passing members of the public may have seen two men acting suspiciously around 5.15pm on Waddicar Lane, or may have noticed a large white car speeding away from the area. Any details, however small, may be vital to our investigation.”
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Sefton CID on 0151 777 3835, call 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
