He was white, of medium build, with short, shaven blonde hair, and wearing an Ali G mask, a red skull cap, a black bomber jacket, blue top and blue jeans.
A cashier handed over a small amount of cash before the offender ran off towards the A19. The staff member was not injured in the incident but was left shaken and distressed.
