Three masked robbers armed with knives and a hammer threatened staff at Shefa Mehadrin Kosher Deli in Manchester, before ripping out its till.
The robbery, which lasted just two minutes, began when the three men entered the shop at 8pm last Thursday shouting.
“One held a hammer high in the air and shouted, ‘open up the tills’, said Gavriel Jacobson, who was shopping inside at the time. “Everyone froze, then they pulled out the whole till and ran away.”
Around 20 people were inside the shop at the time.
