Greater Manchester Police have just released an image of a man they want to speak to about an armed robbery at a petrol station in Oldham last month.

At around 9.30pm on Saturday 11 May, a man approached the kiosk at Asda petrol station on Milne Street in Chadderton in a silver car.

He pulled up alongside the payment window, wound down the window and pointed a gun at the cashier.

He demanded cash from the till, handed over a black bin liner to be filled, took the cash and drove away.

The man was wearing a black balaclava with just the eyes and mouth showing. The car is described as a silver Vauxhall Corsa or Astra.

Police are appealing for information and witnesses and have released an image of a man they would like to speak to. They say the man may have vital information that can assist with the investigation.

Detective Constable Ian Stockwell said: “The woman who was working at the kiosk that night has been left extremely shaken by the whole ordeal. If you were in the area that night and saw the incident happen or anything suspicious please call police.

“We are keen to trace the man in the CCTV image as we believe he may have vital information that can assist us. If this was you or you know it who it was please get in touch.”

Anyone with information should call Oldham Borough Integrated Neighbourhood Team on 0161 856 9045 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
