Help trap ‘Spi­derman’ raider

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

A ROB­BER car­ry­ing a Spi­derman bag struck twice in 30 min­utes.

The thug used the plas­tic car­rier, fea­tur­ing the comic crime­fighter, to take away goods af­ter threat­en­ing shop work­ers with a ma­chete.

Po­lice have now re­leased CCTV im­ages fol­low­ing the two armed rob­beries in Wigan. At around 6.45am on Satur­day, Septem­ber 29, a man en­tered the ARG Food and Wine Store on Hardy­butts.

He de­manded cash be­fore launch­ing a vi­o­lent at­tack swing­ing a ma­chete in the di­rec­tion of the shop as­sis­tant.

The store em­ploy­ees were un­harmed and the of­fender fled empty-handed head­ing to­wards Dar­ling­ton Street East.

About half an hour later, a sec­ond at­tack oc­curred at RS McColls Con­ve­nience Store on War­ring­ton Road. It is be­lieved the same of­fender was in­volved as he once again bran­dished a ma­chete at the shop as­sis­tant who was forced to hand over cash and cig­a­rettes. Po­lice have now re­leased CCTV of a man they would like to speak to in con­nec­tion with these in­ci­dents.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can call po­lice on 0161 856 7257 or 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 684 of 29/09/18.
