We are appealing for witnesses following an armed robbery in Hereford.

The incident happened at around 10pm on Thursday, 29 August at the Tesco Express store on Holme Lacy Road.

Two males wearing balaclavas are believed to have entered the store and threatened staff with a knife before making off with a quantity of cash and alcohol.

Investigating officers have arrested a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy in connection with this incident and have seized a knife. The two boys remain in police custody at this time while they assist officers with their enquiries.

Officers have also retrieved what is believed to be the stolen cash and alcohol.

Detective Sergeant Frank Real from West Mercia Police said:

Quote

"Thankfully no one was injured as a result of this incident but it was no doubt a frightening ordeal for the staff in this shop who were left shaken following the incident.

"Enquiries are currently ongoing but I would urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident or was in the area at the time and saw something suspicious to please get in touch."

Anyone with any information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 787s of 29 August 2019.

Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
