Detectives have issued CCTV images of two men who could assist with their enquiries following a robbery in Liverpool city centre.
At around 4.45pm on Monday 28 March, it was reported that a postman was walking at the junction of Harrington Street and Dorans Lane having collected a quantity of high-value jewellery when a man assaulted him before making off with the postbag.
It is believed that the offender had been lying in wait, disguised in builders’ clothing and wearing a hard hat before the victim was targeted.
The offender got into a white van that was waiting for him on North John Street and the two offenders drove off towards Victoria Street.
Extensive CCTV and witness enquiries have been conducted, and detectives have issued CCTV images of two men they believe could assist in their investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector Lee Wilkinson said, “This was a cowardly attack against a victim going about his daily duties. Fortunately, he was not seriously injured but was understandably distressed after the attack.
“I am appealing to the two men featured in these images, or anyone who recognises them to come forward. We believe they could hold information that could be vital to our continuing enquiries.”
