Police are appealing for information after a robbery at a convenience store in Eston.
The incident occurred just after 8am on Saturday morning at the Nisa convenience store at the petrol station on Wilton Way in Eston.
Two men walked into the shop and one of them was armed with a bladed weapon whilst the other was armed with a plank of wood.
Both of the men threatened the staff and demanded for them to hand over the cash from the tills.
One of the men is described as being around 19-20-years-old and he was wearing a dark tracksuit with his hood pulled over his face.
The second man is thought to be the same age and he was wearing a blue tracksuit with a blue baseball cap pulled down over his face.
Both men spoke with a local accent.
A small amount of cash was stolen from the tills and no one was injured.
Anyone with information regarding the identities of the males is asked to contact Temporary Detective Sergeant Paul Hodgson from Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The contracts are with Hanson for blast furnace slag, and Javelin Global Commodities for imported coal.
The terminal, on the south bank of the River Tees secured a long term deal with Javelin Global Commodities to handle hundreds of thousands of tonnes of imported coal for use in the power generating sector.
