CCTV has been released after a security guard was attacked and robbed by two men armed with a baseball bat.
Police received a report of a robbery at the One Stop store, on Station Road, Camperdown at 12.25pm on Wednesday.
Two security guards were at the store when they were approached by two men, who got out of a white Ford Connect style van parked opposite, armed with a baseball bat and a bottle containing an unknown substance.
The men attacked one of the guards and stole a cash box containing a quantity of cash from him.
The guard's safety helmet and body armour stopped him from suffering any serious injuries and he was treated for shock only.
The offenders left the scene in the white van and headed down Front Street and then onto Station Road.
Det Insp Steve Wouldhave, from Northumbria Police's Major Crime Team, said: "Although two men carried out the robbery, we believe there may have been another two other men involved who were in the driver's seat and front passenger seat of the van.
"There are a number of garages in the area which police are checking and if anyone has any information I'd urge them to get in touch as soon as possible."
