A PETROL station worker has been left extremely shaken after she was threatened by a man during a robbery in Sandiway.

The incident happened at around 9pm on Sunday (February 7) at the Shell Garage at the junction of the A556 Chester Road and A49 Forest Road.

Cheshire Police are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage with Detectives saying the man, who was possibly armed, threatened the woman who was working behind the counter and demanded she hand over all of the cash.

He then stole the money from the safe and fled the store on foot, running towards the A49, in the direction of Cuddington.

He was described as wearing a grey jacket and dark coloured trousers.

He had his hood-up and was wearing a dark face covering and was carrying a backpack.
