A man who threatened an off licence employee with a knife has been jailed.
Michael Johnson, of Samuel Street, Atherton was sentenced to five years in prison at Liverpool Crown Court.
He was found guilty of robbery and possession of a bladed article in public following a trial.
At around 10.05pm on Sunday the 17th of July 2016, Johnson went into Bargain Booze on Elliot Street, Tyldesley, and brandished a knife.
He threatened a female member of staff and demanded money from the till.
Johnson's identity was obscured by a beanie hat that was pulled over his face, but he was arrested on the 12th of August 2016 after police received information that he was responsible for the robbery.
