CCTV images issued as part of investigation into Kensington shop robbery
We have issued CCTV images of a man we want to speak to following a robbery at a shop in Kensington.
At around 1.15pm on Saturday 27th April a male entered the Best One shop on Farnworth Street. He approached the shop counter holding a knife and threw a bag at an assistant telling them to fill it with cigarettes and then demanded cash from the till.
The male then made off on a pedal cycle.
Nobody was injured following the incident but shop assistant was left shaken by their ordeal.
Enquiries have been ongoing and we have issued CCTV images of a man we believe could assist with our enquiries.
