DETECTIVES are appealing for information about a robbery at a shop in Grays.
Two men entered Vision Pharmacy in Crammavill Street shortly before 6.50pm on Sunday January 17.
One threatened a staff member with a screwdriver and demanded money.
He took a small amount of money from the till and asked the victim to empty his pockets. He handed over a small amount of cash and both suspects ran out of the shop and into Whitmore Avenue.
No-one was injured.
Officers attended and enquiries are ongoing to locate the suspects.
The man with the screwdriver was described as white and aged in his early 20s. He wore grey jogging bottoms, a dark blue jacket and a grey hooded top underneath with the hood up.
The second suspect wore a blue hooded top with the hood up, which had three lines of white writing on the front. He wore black trousers and black gloves.
Investigating officer Dc Nicola Hadfield, of Grays CID, said: "I am appealing for witnesses or anyone who saw these men before or after entering the shop to get in touch.
"I would especially like to speak to a customer who entered the store shortly after the incident and may have seen the men leave the premises.”
Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to call Dc Hadfield on 101, or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org
