Two of the men went into Beeston Wine Stores and pretended to buy items before attacking the 35-year-old shopkeeper.

He managed to run to the door and shout for help while the third man, who had been waiting outside, tried to get him back into the shop.

One of the men in the shop got behind the counter but could not open the till. All three men then ran off towards the Noster's area.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them at Holbeck Police Station.
