Greater Manchester Police have launched an investigation and have issued a CCTV image of two men they want to talk to about a robbery at an Oldham petrol station back in April.

It was at around 10.50pm on Friday 26th April when two men entered the Sainsbury’s petrol station off Emmott Way in Oldham.

The offenders threatened staff with a knife and a handgun and demanded money from the tills before fleeing towards Rhodes Bank with a quantity of cash.

No one was injured during the robbery, but staff were left understandably shaken.

Anyone who recognises the individuals in the picture, or has any information, should call police on 0161 856 8999 quoting incident number 2379 of 26/04/19.

Details can also be passed on anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
