We are investigating a robbery at a Colchester shop and are appealing for further witnesses.
We were called shortly before 9pm yesterday, Wednesday 13 October, after three men threatened staff at the East of England Co-Op Food Store in Old Heath Road.
Two members of staff were pushed and the suspects left with money and cigarettes worth a four figure sum.
Witnesses reported seeing them run towards Cavendish Avenue before getting into a car, which was last seen driving towards Barn Hall Avenue.
One of the suspects wore a green hoodie, black puffer jacket, grey jogging bottoms and grey trainers.
The second wore a black balaclava, grey hoodie, black jogging bottoms, black gloves and black trainers.
The third wore a green balaclava, green hoodie or coat, black jogging bottoms and black trainers.
Anyone with information or camera footage is asked to contact Colchester CID on 101 quoting reference 42/229698/21.
You can also submit a report online or speak to an online operator between 7am-11pm or call 101.
