The pair entered the shop in Walpole Road, Cambridge at about 5pm on Tuesday, October 23, demanding cash. A worker refused and the pair instead made off with three bottles of alcohol worth more than £70.

DC John Cox said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the shop worker and for members of the public in the area at the time.

“I would urge anybody who recognises those pictures to get in touch of a matter of urgency.”
