Appeal for information following armed robbery in Litherland
Main article content
We are appealing for information following a report of an armed robbery at a pub in Litherland on Sunday, 24 April.
At around 2.05am we received a report that a man holding what appeared to be a gun entered the Railway pub on Bridge Road and demanded money from the till.
He took a quantity of cash, left the pub and then made off on a pedal bike towards Church Road.
No injuries were reported but members of staff were left shaken by the incident.
The suspect is described as white male, around 6ft tall, wearing all black clothing with his face covered. He spoke with a Liverpool accent.
CCTV and witness enquiries are being carried out and anyone with any information is asked to contact police.
Detective Inspector Paul Gillies said: “We are appealing for information following a robbery at the Railway pub on Sunday morning.
“We understand that there were people in the pub at the time of the incident. If this was you, please come forward as information you hold could be vital to our enquiries.
“Similarly if you were driving in the Church Road area in the early hours of Sunday morning and have dashcam footage then please review it and let us know if you see the man described on a bike or anything suspicious.
“No-one should be subjected to this level of fear and intimidation while they try to earn an honest living, so please come forward and we will do everything in our power to put this offender before the courts.
“Whether you come forward to us directly or anonymously via Crimestoppers, all information will be acted upon.”
If you have any information, please message ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ on Facebook or call 101 with reference 22000279309.
