Police have released dramatic CCTV footage capturing the moment three hooded men stormed a convenience store in an armed robbery in Sydney’s northwest.

The vision shows the men entering the store about 1.40pm with their faces covered and approaching a woman working at the counter of the Eastwood shop.

One of the men allegedly threatened the 31-year-old shop worker with a knife. Another man grabbed a large number of confectionary products and cigarettes while the third man kept watch.

The men were seen fleeing the Terry Road shop in a grey sedan headed towards Darvall Road.

Police were called the incident and conducted a search of the surrounding area but the three men were not located.

The attendant was not injured during the incident.

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward, including a fourth man seen approaching the shop counter shortly before the robbery.
