Three masked men wielding meat cleavers have robbed a store in Melbourne’s north, stealing money, cigarettes and purses from customers and the owners.
Police believe the men entered the shop on Regent street in Preston just before 1pm on Tuesday, and escaped in a green, two-door Ford Festiva parked outside, where a fourth man was waiting.
No one was injured during the armed robbery, and police are investigating.
The men were described as wearing dark-coloured hooded tops and masks, and the car was last seen in Massey Street in Reservoir.
Anyone with information is asked to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
