Police have released an image in connection with an attempted robbery in Northenden.

At around 6.30pm on Friday 13 October 2017, police were called to reports of an attempted robbery at a newsagents on Royle Green Road.

“We’ve released an image of a man we wish to speak to, in the hope that someone will recognise him and can help our investigation into this incident.

“I’d also ask anyone who was near the shop or in the area and heard any kind of disturbance, to please get in touch with police and share what you know.”
