POLICE have issued CCTV footage of a tattooed robber who held up a Flixton convenience store.

At around 6.40pm on March 9, the robber entered the One Stop Store, on Moorside Road, and threatened staff with a knife.

He jumped over the counter, threatened to stab the man behind the counter and ordered him to open the till.

He then fled with a quantity of cash.

No-one was hurt in the incident.

His attoo is black writing, in possible foreign characters.

Det Con Andrew Warren, based at Stretford, said: “I now want people to take a close look at the footage.

“You can clearly see a really distinctive tattoo on the robber’s left arm.

“Anyone who knows him would recognise it so, please, if you know who this man is then call us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
