Robbery at petrol station in Salford

November 7, 2014, 2:17 pm

Thieves punched a garage attendant in the face during a robbery.

It happened at around 7.05pm on Wednesday 5 November 2014 when three masked men entered the Shell garage on Eccles New Road

They pushed customers aside,  jumped over the counter and punched the cashier in the face several times, while stealing money and cigarettes from the till area.

The offenders then left the shop, and were seen to leave the scene on motorbikes.

Some of the motorcycles were later recovered nearby on Cotterill Street.

There were three robbers, one had a black crash helmet, one wore a blue and white crash helmet and a third had his hood up wearing dark coloured sportswear.

Detective Constable Cathy Blain, based at Salford, said: “This was a frightening attack on the cashier that left him distressed, and badly shaken up.

“He wasnt badly injured but this had the potential to be more serious. The offenders had no qualms about entering a busy shop, with customers already inside, and carrying out this violent robbery.

“Were you one of the customers in the shop? Did you see the offenders leave after the robbery, or see them dump the bikes afterwards?”

I’m appealing for anyone with information to contact myself on 65361 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
