Police are appealing for information after a shopkeeper was threatened at knifepoint during a robbery at an off-license in Bamber Bridge.

Around 5pm on Tuesday 23rd October 2012 a man has entered The Beer Store on Station Road and threatened the 29 year old female shopkeeper with a knife whilst demanding money from the till.

The offender has proceeded to remove a quantity of cash from the till before fleeing from the store on foot.

The offender is described as being white, tall, thin and aged between 18 to 20 years old.

There were no customers in the shop at the time of the offence but police are appealing for anyone with information about the offence or the man responsible to come forward.

Sergeant Richard Horton from South Ribble CID said: “This is a nasty robbery which has left the female shop worker extremely distressed.

“An investigation is underway but anyone with any information that could assist with our enquiries should contact South Ribble CID on 01772 415947 or 101.”

People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org
