Police are investigating a robbery at a petrol station in Aberdeen.
A masked man is said to have entered the Shell Wellington site at about 11.45pm on Saturday.
Detectives said the man threatened the 35-year-old shopkeeper and demand money.
The thief, who was dressed entirely in black, made off with a small amount of cash and a quantity of cigarettes.
He was last seen heading in the direction of the city’s Redmoss area.
While the shopkeeper was left physically unharmed, they are said to have been left distressed by the incident.
Detective Sergeant Sam Harris said: “This was a very traumatic experience for the shop keeper and it is vital we trace the man responsible.
“I’d like to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity of the petrol station at about 11.45pm, who may have seen the suspect hanging about prior to the robbery taking place or leaving afterwards.”
Officers are also keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at that time who may have dash cam footage.
Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
