The offender tried to break into the tills but then fled empty-handed.
He is described as white, in his 30s, wearing a high-visibility sleeveless jacket over a dark blue hooded top, a face covering, grey gloves, grey tracksuit bottoms and red trainers.
Detective Constable Kevin Poole, investigating, said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the member of staff.
“While his face is not visible on the CCTV, the offender was wearing very distinctive clothing and I would appeal to anyone who saw him leave the store or recognises the description, to call police.”
