Two men entered Co-op on High Street in Wolstanton, Newcastle-under-Lyme, at around 8.15pm on 16 January and threatened a member of staff with an axe.
Thankfully, no one was injured but the pair made off with a quantity of cash and cigarettes and ran off towards the direction of Keelings Street.

“Anyone with information can call 101 quoting incident number 602 of 16 January, direct message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter or email [email protected]
