DETECTIVES are appealing for information after a robbery in Chorley.
At about 8.30pm last night (Tuesday, November 7th) a man went into Singh Costcutters, Harpers Lane and threatened the lone shop assistant with knives demanding money and cigarettes.
He then went behind the counter and stole a quantity of cash and cigarettes before making off on foot.
He is described as white, aged in his twenties, wearing a black hooded jacket with a neck warmer across his face, black pants, and black trainers.
The shop assistant was unhurt but shaken up.
Detective Constable Steve Gilmore, of Chorley CID, said: “This must have been a terrifying ordeal for the shop assistant, although thankfully they were not physically hurt.
“I would urge anyone with any information to get in touch with us.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting crime number SC1708630.
