Two males sought following Wallasey knifepoint robbery

Merseyside Police has released an image of two males who could have information following a knifepoint robbery in Wallasey on Friday 7 July.

At about 6.10pm, a 15-year-old boy waiting to meet a friend in the grounds of Claremount Methodist Church was approached by two males.

One of the males took a wooden-handled serrated knife, measuring around 10in, from his waistband. The knife had a small hole near the base of the handle.

The victim stepped away and the offenders left with his electric bike, which is described as a navy blue Eleglide electric pedal cycle.

While the victim was not physically harmed, he was left extremely shaken by the ordeal.

Police believe the two males pictured could have information to help with ongoing enquiries.

Detective Inspector Dave Sung said, “Although several weeks have passed since this incident, our enquiries are ongoing and we continue to treat this extremely seriously.

“If you are the two males pictured, or know who they are, please get in touch.

“Carrying and threatening people with knives can have catastrophic consequences, and we will continue to use all our available powers to stop and search those we suspect are in possession of weapons which can cause fear and harm.”
