Police has launched an investigation after a Merseyside travel agency was robbed.
Staff were threatened and an unconfirmed amount of foreign currency stolen when a man raided the Co-operative Travel store on Liverpool Road in Crosby.
Officers were called to the store at 2.40pm on Friday (August 5) following reports a man had entered the shop and demanded cash from the safe.
He later left with a quantity of currency, some of which he dropped in the street as he fled towards the store’s carpark at the rear of the building, the Liverpool Echo reports.
Following the incident, police conducted a search of the local area and examined CCTV in a bid to identify the suspect.
Authorities have described the man as being white, of slim build with a shaved head, and wearing black-rimmed glasses and a blue top.
No one was injured during the robbery but staff members were said to be left feeling “distressed” by the ordeal, the Liverpool Echo added.
Anyone with information is asked to call Merseyside Police on 0151 777 3055 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
