A petrol station cashier has been held at knifepoint in an attempted armed robbery.
A 27 year-old woman was working with the BP Service Station on Glasgow road in Wishaw when a man came in brandishing a knife and demanded money.
The man then ran off when the woman raised the alarm.
The suspect is described as white, 5ft 7 of slim build and aged between 20 and 30 years-old.
He was wearing a blue jacket with the hood up and dark coloured trousers.
Detective Constable Victoria Ross, Wishaw CID, said:
"Although nobody was injured, this was a terrifying ordeal for the woman who was simply at her work.
"Officers have been checking CCTV and know that the man was outside the service station for a while before he entered and we are appealing to anyone who may have seen him.
"There were a number of cars and people walking by at the time who may have information that can help. We urge you to come forward."
