Masked raiders threatened a shopkeeper with a knife and stole cash and cigarettes.
The two men, both wearing hoods with scarfs around their faces, burst into Farhan News in Staincliffe Road, Dewsbury, at closing time on Thursday.
The shopkeeper had already pulled down the shutters when the raiders rushed in.
One brandished a kitchen knife and demanded the contents of the till. He then went behind the counter and filled an Asda ‘bag for life’ with cash.
He then stuffed packets of cigarettes into the bag, causing one of the handles to split.
The raid happened at 6.55pm and police are appealing for witnesses.
Both men then left the store with the bag, turning left onto Staincliffe Road.
The first suspect is described as 5ft 8in to 5ft 9in tall, of stocky build and wearing a black hooded top or coat with the hood pulled over his face. He had a scarf tied around the lower section of his face and nose.
He was thought to be wearing gloves and spoke with a local accent and was believed to be white.
His accomplice was of a similar height, also stocky and wore a hooded top and a scarf around his face.
