Detectives investigating an armed robbery in Birkenhead yesterday (Saturday 28 September) have arrested a man.

At 11.20am, officers were called to Asda on Stanley Road to reports of two men entering the premises, one of whom was reportedly in possession of a machete, and stole cash from within.

The offenders are believed to have left on a motorbike and travelled towards Birkenhead town centre. No staff were injured, although they were understandably shaken.

Following enquiries, a 35-year-old man from Prenton was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery. He was taken to a police station for questioning and has now been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information who has yet to come forward is asked to contact @MerPolCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with reference 19100560299.
