DETECTIVES hunting two armed robbers who struck at a Northwich off-licence have released CCTV images of one of the suspects.
Two men raided Bargain Booze on Victoria Road shortly after 8pm on Saturday, July 4 and escaped with "a large amount of cash" after threatening the 35-year-old female shop assistant.
A Cheshire Police spokeswoman said: "One of the men remained at the door to the shop, the other went inside armed with a knife and demanded cash from the till.
"The shop assistant handed over the cash takings. Both men then ran from the shop down a nearby alleyway, fleeing the scene. Fortunately, nobody was hurt."
Both offenders are white, about 6ft tall and thought to be aged around 40.
One was wearing a black, zipped-up hooded top and black gloves. He is described as wearing a cap and sunglasses and had grey stubble on his face and missing teeth. The second man was also wearing a cap.
