Balaclava-clad robbers struck at a petrol station in Maidenhead last night threatening an attendant with a cricket bat and stealing batteries, cigarettes and cash.
At about 8.05pm the three robbers pulled onto the forecourt of the service station in Shoppenhangers road in a dark-coloured car - believed to be a Subaru with a broken registration plate, a grill on top of the bonnet and a small rear spoiler.
One of the robbers was carrying a cricket bat, which was used to threaten a shop worker.
He was not injured.
One of the raiders is more than 6ft tall, of large build, and was wearing a dark jumper and black tracksuit trousers.
Another was wearing black tracksuit trousers and a dark hooded-top with red markings down the side and under the arms.
The other robber was wearing a hooded top, the top half of which was white and the bottom half dark and dark-coloured tracksuit trousers with white lines down the sides.
After the raid they drove off in the direction of A404M.
