Shop worker threatened with gun for refusing £1 refund

Published

on

A man threatened a shop worker with a gun after she refused to give him a £1 discount on a bottle of beer.

And no sooner had the woman told the gunman that the police were on their way that the man put the gun back in his waistband and paid for the beer.

He then calmly put the change in a charity box.

It happened at the One Stop Store on Stretford, Trafford, at about 9.40am on 4 January 2014.

The man casually strolled into the store and picked out two bottles of beer which he put on the counter. After requesting the shop assistant, 51, give him a £1 discount to which she refused, he pulled a gun from his waistband and cocked the weapon.

Shocked, the shop assistant told the gunman the police were on the way to which the man replied i don’t want that and paid her £3 for just one of the bottles. He then placed in the change in a charity box and walked out.

The man is described as white, of a heavy build and about 20-25-years-old. He was said to be 5ft 5in to 5ft 8in tall, with a shaved head, fat face and wearing a black baseball cap with a motif on its peak.

He was also wearing a burgundy jacket with light coloured sleeves, dark trousers, light-coloured shoes, a dark coloured T-shirt with an unknown emblem on the front and jeans.

Police are now appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

Detective Constable Andy Warren said: “This was, quite frankly, a bizarre robbery the likes of which I have never come across before. Quite what the offender was thinking I do not know but his actions were extremely strange.

“However, I want to be absolutely clear that while some might find his behaviour odd, this is no laughing matter.

“He pulled out a gun and cocked it in an intimidating manner in front of a shop worker who had no idea what he was going to do and whether he would genuinely fire the weapon. For her it was a terrifying experience and we therefore need to catch this man before he tries anything like this again.

“We have released a CCTV still of the man and I would appeal to anyone who recognises this man to come forward.

“I also want shopkeepers in the local area to be vigilant and study this picture. If this man comes into your shop, do not wait for him to try something similar but call the police immediately.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
