Detective Sergeant Robinson said:

“It was reported that two men entered the premises around 8.20pm.  One was armed with a knife, and the other with an iron bar."

“It is believed one of the men hit the iron bar on the counter and demanded money, while the other pointed a knife at the female member of staff."

“One of the men is described as being in his mid-twenties, approximately 5’ 5” in height, and of slim build. He had a white scarf around his head, and was wearing a black hooded top and black gloves."

“The second suspect is described as being the taller of the two.  He was wearing a dark green bomber-style jacket, with the hood up. "

“This was an absolutely terrifying experience for the member of staff, who was left visibly shaken."
