CCTV images have been released by police after an armed robbery on a delivery truck in Greater Manchester.
A delivery driver was unloading his truck outside the One Stop store on Humphrey Lane when he was approached by two men who'd got out of a green Ford Focus estate car.
The robbery took place on the morning of the 28th of September.
The first offender, wearing a ski mask, a dark-coloured jacket and a light-coloured hood, climbed on to the tailgate of the truck.
The second offender, who was wearing a light-coloured hoody, assisted him by taking a large quantity of cigarettes from the truck and put them inside the Ford Focus.
After noticing what was happening, the delivery driver pushed a trolley in the direction of the first offender, causing him to jump off the tailgate.
He then brandished an eight-inch knife at the delivery driver and a female member of staff who came out of the store after hearing the commotion.
Police are appealing for information and are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has any information about the Ford Focus, which had a registration plate starting with X497.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 and quote the reference number 616 of 28/09/16, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
