Appeal after knife-point shop robbery

Can you help our investigation into a knife-point robbery at a convenience store on Two Mile Hill, Bristol?

It happened soon after 6am on Monday 2 December. Two men entered the shop. Both had their faces covered and one produced a knife described as a cleaver.

They threatened two women staff members and emptied the tills before making off on foot towards St George.

The man with the knife was described as white, 5ft 6 or 5ft 7ins tall, and of stocky build. He wore a dark blue boiler suit, grey gloves, a black balaclava or snood and a black beanie hat.

The other man was also white, about 5ft 10ins tall, and of thin build. He wore grey jogging trousers, a dark waterproof jacket, a black balaclava, snood or scarf and black gloves. He carried a rucksack.

Both men were said to have Bristolian accents.

Thankfully no one was hurt in the incident but the store staff were very shaken and distressed.
