Police have issued CCTV images following robbery at gunpoint in Oldham earlier this week

The robbery occurred just before 7.00pm on Monday on Manchester Street when a man threatened the 26 year old victim with a gun and demanded he hand over cash and his bank card.

The victim did not sustain any injuries during the robbery but he’s been left, understandably, incredibly shaken by the ordeal.

The offender fled on foot in the direction of Oldham Town centre.

Detectives have today released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

Detective Sergeant Mike Ogiliev of GMP’s Oldham district said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim and I’m thankful that he was left uninjured. This happened on the edge of the town centre in the early evening so we confident there will have been people in the area who witnessed the incident take place.

“We’re following all available lines of enquiry to ensure the man responsible is apprehended and faces the appropriate justice. Today we’ve released two images of men we believe could assist our investigation. If you recognise these men then please get in touch with police as a matter of urgency.”
