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.”
