Armed robbers target a Co-op in Flixton

Police are appealing for information after an armed robbery at a Co-op on Ambleside Road in Flixton.

At around 7am on October 30, police were called to reports of a robbery at the store.

Two men entered the store carrying knives, they then forced a member of staff to open the security office.

Once inside, the men took cash from within the office before making off in a black Fiat Punto, which was later found abandoned on Wycliffe Road.

Detective constable Amanda Tootill of GMP Trafford Borough said: “These men were carrying weapons in the knowledge that this would terrify the staff member within.

“The person working in the shop at the time could have been seriously injured, and was simply doing their job when met with these men carrying knives.

“This happened in the morning when people may have been around the area, so I’d ask anyone who saw something suspicious at the time, or recognises the description of the car, to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 865 7677 or 101, quoting incident number 282 of 30/10/17, you can also call anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
