Two masked men wielding weapons rob shop in Cannock

Two masked men who had a knife and a hammer have stolen cash and tobacco during a raid at a shop in Cannock.

The hooded men, who were wearing gloves, entered the shop on Cannock Road, Chadsmoor, at 9.55pm on Wednesday.

One of them had a hammer while the other had a knife. Threats were made to staff and the men fled before police arrived.

No-one was injured during the incident and police believe the robbers left on foot through a woodland area nearby.

They believe the might have come out of the woodland onto Stratford Way, with one of them described as Asian, around 6ft tall and wearing a balaclava, a black jacket, black loose bottoms and black boots.

The only description police have of the second offender is a man who was dressed in black.
