DI Mark Butler, of Cambridgeshire police, said: "Inquiries have began to identify the person responsible for this robbery, which left the two young women working at the shop extremely upset.
"We are particularly keen to speak to a man who was in the shop at the time using game machine number four, because we believe he may have crucial information.
"There was also a small group of people outside at the time who would have seen the robber ride off. I would urge these people and anyone else with information, to contact police."
