A MINI-MARKET was robbed by two armed intruders.

One of the men was brandishing a handgun and the other was carrying an axe.

Staff at Sans mini-market, Havelock Road, Gravesend, were terrified when the men entered the shop at around 10pm and pointed the gun at the shopkeeper.

After the raiders demanded money a shop assistant handed cash over to them.

The robbers then ran off into Campbell Road, toward the Campbell Arms pub.

The first offender is Asian, aged between 25 and 28 and 5ft 7in tall. He has a stocky build and wore dark clothing.

The second man is Asian, 23 to 25 and 5ft 5in tall.

He has a slim build and was wearing a khaki-coloured balaclava over his face.
