Knifepoint robbery at post office

Detectives from Merseyside Police are appealing for information following a knifepoint robbery yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, 1 May 2018).

Just after 1pm, officers were called to The Saughall Bridge Post Office on Hoylake Road, Wirral following reports that two men had entered the store holding a knife.

They threatened staff and customers and demanded money before making off towards Douglas Lane with a large quantity of cash in pound sterling and other currencies.

No-one was hurt during the incident but staff and customers were left very shaken.

Both men are described as white, of slim build, between 5ft 11 and 6ft.

One was wearing a grey Berghaus fleece, black hat, black pants and black and grey Nike Airmax trainers. The other was wearing a grey bubble coat, black gloves and was carrying a hunting knife. Both men had their faces covered.

Officers are currently in the area conducting enquiries and analysing CCTV in order to identify those responsible.

Detective Inspector Mike Dalton said: “Thankfully no-one was injured during this incident but all those involved were left shaken by what happened.

“We’re determined to crack down on business robberies across Merseyside and will not tolerate this criminal behaviour.

“I want to reassure the public that we’re doing everything we can to identify those responsible and bring them to justice and would urge anyone that saw something suspicious to get in touch.”

Anyone with information can call on 101 or contact via the social media desk @MerPolCC or call @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111.
