Do you recognise any of these men?

At about 7am on 16 February, four men wearing face coverings entered the station on Tong Street, forced their way into an office and stole a significant amount of cash.

One of the men was believed to be carrying a meat cleaver.

Neither of the two shop staff – a 24-year-old female and a 17-year-old male – were hurt.

The men then left in a vehicle believed to be a red Ford hatchback-style car, which drove off towards Birkenshaw.

Police have released CCTV stills of footage of the incident, showing a car parked out whilst the robbery took place including images of the suspects.

The car parked up outside the pump.

Detective Inspector Ryan Bragg, of Bradford District CID, said: “We believe this vehicle was parked up on the forecourt while the robbery took place and would appeal to anyone who saw this car in the time leading up to, or shortly after this incident.

“We would also be keen to hear from anyone who may recognise any of these men from these photos. One of whom was wearing a distinctive grey and black jacket.”

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call Bradford District CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
