VIDEO: Robber Steals Cash From Chorlton Bar

A ROBBER threw a beer keg through the window of The Nook in Chorlton before threatening staff at knifepoint.

At about 1.20am on Monday 10 October 2011, the offender threw the keg through a window at Nook Bar on Wilbraham Road.

"The offender is clearly comfortable causing damage to property and threatening anyone he comes across with a deadly weapon."

He threatened staff inside with a large kitchen knife before running off towards Chorlton Metrolink station with some cash. He crossed the Metrolink and jumped over a fence, before escaping towards Buckingham Road.

He is described as being Asian with pale skin, between 18 and 25 years old and 5ft 6in and 6ft tall and of slim build.

In a similar incident at about 3.45am on Sunday 16 October 2011, an unknown offender threw a beer keg through a window at Proof Bar on Barlow Moor Road.

He brandished a knife and threatened the manager through the window but ran off when the victim refused to hand over any money.

The would-be robber is described as Asian, about 5ft 6in tall and of slim build. It is thought he could have been with an accomplice.

Detective Constable Chris Clarke, said: "The offender is clearly comfortable causing damage to property and threatening anyone he comes across with a deadly weapon.

"We are determined to identify him before he strikes again and I would urge anyone with information about either incident or those responsible to contact us in complete confidence."

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 6153, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
