Shocking footage of an armed raid at a store in Cardiff has been released.

The video below shows three men police are hunting who ran in a Spar store in Clearwater Way, Lakeside, brandishing knives and robbed cash and cigarettes.

The 54-year-old store supervisor was uninjured but badly shaken up.

The robbery happened on Wednesday evening at 10.20pm and lasted about a minute.

Officers from South Wales Police in Cardiff are appealing for information.

Once of the thieves is of Asian appearance, and between 5ft 11in to 6ft tall.

He is in his 20s, and was wearing yellow gloves, dark glasses, a black hooded top, and a checked scarf, thought to be a keffiyeh Arab headdress.

The second man involved is between 5ft 4in and 5ft 6in.

He is tanned, and was wearing dark glasses and a dark hooded top.

The third man was wearing a distinctive dark quilted jacket, which had a white logo on the chest area and on the back.

Detective Sergeant Dafydd Hobbs, from South Wales Police Rumney CID, said: “This was obviously a frightening experience.
