"The staff at the shop went through a frightening ordeal.
“We appeal for anyone who recognises the man in the picture to get in touch.
"No matter how small the details are, it could all help to bring the person responsible for frightening the staff to justice.”
Anyone who recognises the man, or has any information about the incident, is asked to call Cumbria Police on 101 and speak to PC Richard Massey at Carlisle CID.
