A TERRIFYING robbery by a hooded man at knifepoint left his victim shaken.
The 32-year-old local man had a Stanley knife held to his cheek during the harrowing ordeal as he walked by the roundabout at the junction of Sutton Way and Overpool Road at 8.45am last Tuesday, November 17.
The robber demanded ‘give us money’ while holding the blade to his face before grabbing the wallet and a cigarette packet out of his hand and running past him toward Overpool Road.
Cheshire Constabulary spokeswoman Jacqui Hanson said: “As a result of this incident the victim was unharmed but he was left shaken.
“He described the offender as a white man, with a slim build and about 5ft 11in tall, wearing black tracksuit bottoms which were tucked into white socks, black trainers and a black hooded coat with the hood pulled up tight around his face.
“Police are appealing for anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the incident and who may have witnessed this offence or who may have seen the offender prior to the offence taking place or following it as he made his escape.
