Masked men armed with a baseball bat and a machete robbed a convenience store in Leeds.

Leeds District CID today issued images of men they want to speak to in connection with the incident at a shop on Stanks Parade, Swarcliffe.

It took place at about 8.40pm on Tuesday when two men wearing face coverings entered the store carrying a baseball bat and machete.

They threatened staff and made off with cash and tobacco.

Detective Constable Kate Hutton said: “No-one was hurt in this incident but the staff were understandably very shaken by what happened.

“Although the suspect’s faces were not visible, we do think someone in the local community will know who is responsible and I would like to speak to anyone who has information."

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det Con Hutton at Leeds District CID on 101, referencing crime 13170060108.

Information can also be given to the independent Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
