Did you witness a robbery in Hazel Grove?

Officers are appealing for information after a robbery at the Spar, Arundel Avenue, Hazel Grove on Thursday 19November 2020.

At around 8.35am two men entered the rear of the store and threatened two women working at the store, demanding money and cigarettes.

No one was injured during the robbery, but the employees were left understandably shaken.

The offenders fled in a silver Volkswagen Golf Plus towards Chester Road with a quantity of cash.

They are both described as around 5ft 11ins tall, slim with short dark hear and were wearing dark tracksuits and black face masks. Both had local accents.

Detective Constable Christopher Dean from Stockport District CID said: “This was a shocking incident, whereby female members of staff have been left traumatised by the actions of these cowardly offenders.

“The robbery happened at a busy time of the morning when there were a lot of people in the area going to work and school. I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious around this time, or may have any dashcam footage, to get in touch with us.”

No arrests have been made at this time and a number of lines of enquiry are being actively pursued by a team of detectives.

Anyone who has any information about the robbery should call police on 0161 856 9821 quoting incident number 589 of 19/11/2020.

Details can also be passed on anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
