They entered the Tesco Express store, in St Christopher Road, at 9.10pm yesterday and threatened staff, who experienced a “frightening ordeal”, before leaving with an unknown amount of cash.

Nobody was hurt in the incident but police are keen for people to help locate the individuals.

They have been described as wearing dark clothes and gloves ... one black pair and one red pair.

One of the suspects is described as being in his 30s and wearing a grey top.

Detective Sergeant Stuart Knight, of Colchester CID, said: “Masked men entered the store brandishing a hammer and a knife. They have then threatened staff and have forced them to open the till before fleeing. Fortunately no one was hurt but the shop assistants and customers experienced a frightening ordeal.

“We urge anyone with information to contact Colchester CID on 101 quoting incident 962 or 07/11 Crimestoppers on 0800 500 111.”

A teenager has described being “frozen with fear” while she was allegedly sexually assaulted by a Suffolk man.
