Detectives are appealing for witnesses after robbery in Kidsgrove.
The incident happened at around 10.40pm on Thursday 5 September at Bargain Booze on High Street, Rookery, when a man entered the shop and demanded cash from staff. Noone was injured but staff were left shaken by the incident.
The offender stole a quantity of cash and after the incident he was seen running along Rigby Road.
The male offender is described as white, 6ft tall, of slim build, with quite a slim face and a moustache or goatee beard. He was wearing a dark woolly hat with ‘76 Original’ in a turquoise colour on the front and a turquoise strip around a white rim, black sunglasses, a black waterproof hip-length jacket which was covering his mouth, dark jeans, black shoes and black gloves. His coat was pulled up over his mouth. It is believed he was in possession of a bladed weapon and was carrying a black bag with a strap over his shoulder.
