Officers investigating an armed robbery in south Manchester have charged a man.
Paul Sheridan (29/09/70) of Oak Road, Partington has been charged with robbery and remanded into custody.
This relates to an armed robbery that took place at a convenience store in Northern Moor.
Shortly before 8:10pm on Tuesday 11 February 2015, three men wearing balaclavas – one of whom was brandishing a machete – entered the Spar on Moorcroft Road in the Northern Moor area of Manchester.
The men jumped over the counter, leaving shop staff fearing for their safety, and began emptying tobacco into bags they had brought with them before one of the offenders opened the till and removed the cash tray.
The men then left the store and the shopkeeper called the police.
Shortly after the robbery, officers were able to locate and arrest a 33-year-old, a 44-year-old, a 23-year-old and a 28-year-old man on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery.
Three other men have been bailed pending further enquiries.
Anybody with information should contact the police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
