A police spokeswoman said that a white man – wearing gloves and mask – entered the Tesco Express store at the junction of West Heath Road, The Fordrough and Redhill Road just before 10.30pm.
Carrying what appeared to be a gun, the man demanded that staff hand over cash from the till.

Armed officers attended the scene but no arrest has yet been made.
