Gunman threatens terrified staff at Subway

Gunman threatens terrified staff at Subway

by Tom Martin (October 2020)

A MAN armed with a gun threatened staff at a Subway branch in Litherland and stole cash from a till.

The man, holding what appeared to be a firearm, entered the food outlet at around 10.20am on Saturday, October 17 and demanded money.

He was handed a quantity of cash before fleeing the scene on a dark-coloured bicycle in the direction of Tesco.

The man was described as white, with long wavy curly hair, wearing black clothing and a face covering.

There were no reported injuries, but a member of staff was left shaken by the incident.

Detective Inspector Gary Stratton said: “These are the vital early stages of our investigation into this robbery, and we want to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or saw a man with a bicycle acting suspiciously in the vicinity of Subway at about 10.20am.

“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.

“Any small detail, be it CCTV, dashcam or a vehicle seen at speed in the area, could be key evidence, so let us know.”

Anyone with information or who may have dashcam footage is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’. You can also call 101 quoting incident reference 20000629019.
