Police are appealing for information after a Yeovil supermarket was robbed at knifepoint.
The incident happened at Tesco Express in The Forum on Monday afternoon.
Officers say a 20-year-old woman was working as a lone cashier on the tills when a man joined the queue and began letting others in front of him.
When he got to the till, he threatened the employee with a knife, demanding money before making off with a quantity of tobacco.
The man is described as white with dark facial hair, about 40, of slim build and about 5'8".
He spoke quietly and was wearing a black beanie hat, green olive coloured coat, black top and jeans.
