Detectives in Liverpool are appealing for information following an armed robbery at a Post Office in Walton yesterday afternoon, Thursday 23 May.

At around 4.30pm, two hooded males entered the Post Office on Stanley Park Avenue North, one of whom was in possession of a knife. Threats were made and cassettes containing cash were stolen, before the males exited and went towards a blue car parked on Barnsbury Avenue. Enquiries are ongoing to identify and trace this vehicle.

A member of staff sustained a minor injury but did not require treatment.

CCTV, witness and forensic enquiries have been carried out and detectives want to speak to anyone with information.

Detective Inspector Graeme Towndrow said: "Staff at the post office have been left understandably traumatised by this robbery, and officers will be providing reassurance and support to them and other businesses locally.

"To brandish a weapon and threaten any person or business in such a way is absolutely disgusting and we are determined to act on all information to bring those responsible to justice. If you were near to the post office, or passing on foot or on a vehicle, check your vehicle dashcam, any CCTV and come forward with anything you know and let us do the rest."

Anyone with information can contact @MerPolCC, call 101 with reference 19100262895 or the independent charity @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111.
