Detectives in St Helens have released CCTV images and are appealing for information after a filling station was robbed.
The incident happened at the Texaco garage in Jubits Lane, Sutton Manor.
Three men wearing balaclavas and dark clothing walked into the filling station shop, made verbal threats towards the female cashier and helped themselves to cigarettes from the display.
They fled when a security alarm in the shop went off and left in a dark grey-coloured car driven by a fourth person.
The XX-year-old victim was left shaken but unhurt. No weapons were seen.
Two of the offenders loaded the cigarettes into a dirty white bed sheet while the third offender waited by the door to the shop.
The first is described as white, around 6ft tall, of slim build and aged between 21 and 30 years-old. He spoke with a Merseyside accent and wore dark clothing.
The second man, who was carrying the white sheet, was a similar height and build, and had noticably small hands. He was wearing a black tracksuit.
The third offender was taller at around 6ft 1ins or 6ft 2ins, of stocky build with bright blue eyes, dark brown eyes, long eye-lashes and a prominent nose with a mark on the left hand bridge of it. He spoke with a deep, Merseyside accent and was wearing a dark-coloured tracksuit.
Detective Constable Andrew Passey from St Helens CID, said: “This was a pre-planned robbery against a lone female employee who has been left extremely shaken by what these men put her through. She was simply going about her usual shift when she has been confronted by them and warned not to intervene. They have then stolen a large quantity of cigarettes and driven off in a grey Audi or Insignia-type car.
“Jubits Lane is a busy road and a lot of people regularly use the Texaco garage so I am sure that someone will have seen something suspicious there at around 9pm on Friday, October 19. I would appeal to anyone who remembers seeing anything unusual there that night to contact me as even the smallest piece of information could help us trace this gang.”
