Armed Robbery at The Didsbury. Can you help?

Staff at a pub in Didsbury have been threatened with knives during an armed robbery.

At around 12.15am on Monday 25 July 2011, two men walked into The Didsbury pub on Wilmslow Road and demanded money.

They threatened staff with knives and demanded they knelt, facing the floor. They demanded cash before one worker handed over money to one of the men. The other man stayed in the bar area with the remaining staff.

A substantial amount of money was taken along with a Rolex watch and the men left.

One man is described as being white, in his 20s, 5ft 8in tall, of slim build and was wearing dark clothing with black cloth covering his face. He carried a knife.

The second man is described as being white, 5ft 7in tall, in his 40s and had a rounded appearance. He wore dark clothing, a black balaclava and carried a knife.

Detective Constable Andrew Bromley from West Didsbury CID said: “The men used threatening behaviour to get what they wanted and the staff members have been left terrified.

“I would urge anyone who may have been walking home at the time of the incident and who may have seen something suspicious to contact police.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 6153 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
