A SHOP owner was threatened at gunpoint in a terrifying robbery on Wirral.
Sue Morar, 42, was working at Mount Pleasant Stores, in Wallasey, when the armed raider struck.
The gunman came in through the shop’s main door and brandished the weapon before demanding cash from the till just before 5.30pm on Thursday.
He left after Mrs Morar handed over around £600 and escaped on foot through nearby streets.
Mrs Morar’s husband Jim said his wife was “petrified” during the robbery at the Mount Pleasant Road shop.
He said: “It was absolutely terrifying for her. She had just made a cup of tea and was working in the shop as normal when he came in and pointed the gun at her.
“He said ‘don’t do anything, don’t press any panic buttons or I will shoot you, just give me the money now’.
“He started taking the money and putting it in the bag he had used to carry the gun.
“When it got to a certain point he started saying ‘OK, that’s enough’.
“It seemed like there was more than he might have expected.”
Police cordoned off part of Mount Pleasant Road as part of the investigation and CID officers were at the shop yesterday.
Mr Morar said he believed the robber had been watching the shop carefully before carrying out the raid.
