    A convenience store in Aberdeen has been robbed while its shop worker was left shaken after being threatened by masked robbers.

    According to local reports, police officers are searching for two men who made off with a three-figure sum of money during a robbery in the Spital area of Aberdeen.

    The incident happened at the Spital Local Store during late afternoon last week (March 25), during which two men entered and threatened a member of staff. Police say enquiries are ongoing to trace the culprits.

    Both men are described as being around 6ft tall and were wearing all black clothing. They had their faces covered and left in the direction of King Street, stated the reports.

    Police Scotland’s detective constable Chris McKie said, “Fortunately no one was injured but staff were left extremely upset by what happened.

    “We are appealing for anyone who saw anything suspicious or who may know who these men are or where they went to get in touch.”
