At around 6.40am this morning, Friday 6th July, we received reports of a robbery at the Tesco Express store on Ty Gwyn Road in Greenmeadow, Cwmbran.
A man wearing a red mask went into the store carrying a knife and demanded money. He made off with cash from the till in the direction of The Cliffs/Nether Court area.
Nobody was hurt during this incident however staff are understandably shaken.
The man is described as white, around 5ft 10 and of slim build. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top, dark coloured tracksuit bottoms which had white stripes halfway up the leg and black trainers which had a white sole.
Officers are investigating and are asking anyone who may have information to call 101 quoting log 78 6/7/18.
