CCTV images have been released by police investigating a robbery at the Grey Horse pub at Camperdown Front Street.
It happened on Monday, February 6th.
Police have issued photos of two men they want to trace.
Officers are also issuing a photo of the stolen car, a Ford Escort Cosworth with a spoiler, registration N404 RPM, which was used as the get-away vehicle.
DS Richard Cusack from Major Crime said:
"Police hope that by releasing these images we will prompt new witnesses to come forward. This was a violent incident when two men wearing balaclavas broke into the pub and assaulted two members of staff before making off with a substantial amount of money.
Anyone who recognises either man from the images is asked to contact police. Also anyone who has seen this distinctive vehicle, either being driven around, or parked up, since the robbery took place is also asked to contact police."
Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact Northumbria Police on 101 ext 69191 or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
