A Peterborough shop has been robbed at knifepoint.
Cambridgeshire Police say a man walked into Storrington News in Storrington Way at around 9:45am last Tuesday (27 November).
He then got out a knife and threatened a member of staff, ordering him to fill a bag with money.
The robber then filled another bag with cigarettes before running off.
The armed robber is described as white, 19 to 25, and was wearing a blue zip-up hooded top, a blue scarf covering the lower part of his face, black Adidas tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.
Detective Constable Liam Sweeney, who is investigating, said: "This must have been terrifying for the member of staff who was threatened with the knife.
I would urge anyone with any information to call police."
Anyone with any information is asked to call DC Sweeney on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously , on 0800 555111.
