A terrified shop worker handed over cash after a hooded robber raided a Brimington shop.
The man went in to the service station on High Street at 5am today (Friday, December 27).
He walked up to the counter, grabbed the 58-year-old assistant by the top and demanded money.
She struggled before handing over notes from the till. He then made off.
He was wearing a grey coat with the hood up and zipped up to cover his face and tracksuit bottoms.
Witnesses should call police on 101.
