Main article content
We're appealing for witnesses following an armed robbery at a post office in Wavertree today, Friday 21 May.
At around 9.45am, it was reported that two men wearing balaclavas confronted a post office worker on Lawrence Road. The offenders are said to have hit the staff member on the arm with a hammer, before making off with an empty cash box.
It is reported that the offenders drove away in the direction of Picton Road.
The staff member was taken to hospital as a precaution.
CCTV, forensic and witness enquiries are ongoing, and detectives would like to hear from anyone who can assist the investigation.
Detective Inspector Gary Thomas said: “Key workers, including Post Office workers, continue to help keep our communities going throughout challenging times.
“It’s hard to believe someone would confront a staff member in such a violent way, and we will do all we can to find those who did and put them before the courts.
"If you saw anything suspicious in the area this morning, or have dashcam footage from Lawrence Road or Picton Road around 9.45am, please get in touch as soon as possible."
You can pass information via @MerPolCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, with reference 21000326241.
