They ran off along Willow Lane and threw two bottles of spirits at a member of the public who had given chase.
Detective Constable Mark Green, said: “A number of innocent people were threatened and intimidated by these men – who were armed with machetes – and as a result have been left understandably traumatised.
“It is possible that these men live locally or at the very least discarded items from the robbery into peoples gardens.
“If you do find anything you think may have been stolen or if you know the offenders or recognise someone from the CCTV image, please get in touch.”
