A MAN has been charged following a robbery at superstore Tesco in Prescot.

David Kevin Towey, 29, of Manchester Road, Prescot, is due to appear at Liverpool Magistrates’ court today.

Enquiries are on-going in relation to the incident which took place at 9.50am on September 1, in Cables Retail Park and detectives are also appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

Officers are particularly keen to speak with a woman who was walking a dog along Manchester Road, around the time of the incident, as she may be able to assist with the investigation.

Police were called to reports of a cash box taken from a security guard outside Tesco’s supermarket.

The offender made off with the cash box on foot towards Manchester Road, in the direction of Huyton.

A box containing all the cash taken has been recovered.
