Men wearing balaclavas have robbed a petrol station in Cheetham Hill, Greater Manchester.

At 8pm on Monday 2 November, two men walked into Shirley Road petrol station. One of them stood in the door way and the other jumped over the counter demanding staff gave him money.

He threatened the victim with a metal bar before both took cash and cigarettes and left. The offenders are described as being Asian, of slim build and wore dark clothing.

Police constable Claire Johnson said: “Although the victim was not physically injured, it will take him a while to get over the mental scars of what happened. If you saw these men either enter the shop or run out, please call us.”
