Detectives are appealing for the public's help as they investigate a robbery at a shop in Eston.
Just before quarter past six yesterday morning, police received a call from a member of the public reporting that three male suspects, with their faces covered and one armed with a hammer, had entered Sainsburys on Bankfields Road.
They had threatened a female staff member who was left shaken though thankfully physically unharmed.
Two customers were also present at the time.
The suspects made off with cash and cigarettes.
Inquiries are underway and Scene of Crime Officers have been tasked to attend the store.
Anyone with information, dash cam or CCTV which could help is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

Those found speeding were either fined, had their licenses endorsed with points, or received a court summons.
