Armed police are hunting a gunman, feared to be a teenager, who has held up a Cornish petrol station.
He targeted the Shell garage near Kingsley Village at Fraddon at around 10.30pm on Monday night.
The man aged around eighteen threatened staff with what appeared to be a handgun.
He made off with scratchcards, but nobody was hurt.
The force helicopter and armed response officers were scrambled to search for the robber, wearing a green balaclava and blue stripey top. He is described as thin and white.
Andy Oliver from Devon and Cornwall Police said: "I would like to assure the public that incidents of this nature are luckily few and far between in the two counties.
"No-one was injured and I would urge anyone with information to get in contact on the 101 telephone number quoting log 801 of 17th September to help quickly bring the suspect to justice."
People can also contact the police anonymously on the Crimestoppers telephone number 0800 555111.7:01am 18th September 2012
