Police have launched an appeal for information after reports of an armed robbery at a store in St Ives.
The incident took place at the Spar, in Kings Hedges, on Tuesday (November 29) at about 10.50pm.
Two men entered the shop armed with a knife and crow bar. They demanded money before using the crow bar to force open the tills.
They made off on foot with approximately £200 turning right up Ramsey Road.
The men are both white and between 5’9” and 5’10”. One is of slim build wearing a grey hooded top, grey jogging bottoms and white trainers. The other is of a slightly bigger build wearing a grey hooded top, dark jeans and black trainers.
Detective Sergeant Dan Cooper said: “There were two members of staff and two customers in the store at the time of the incident. Thankfully none of them were harmed but that doesn’t take away from the severity of the incident.
“I’d like to appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen these men to come forward.”
