Police are asking for the public's help to identify and locate three people connected to an armed robbery at a southwest Calgary cannabis store.

Officials say at just after midnight on May 25, an unknown woman entered the Spiritleaf Cannabis store, located at 380 Canyon Meadows Dr. S.E.

She left after a few moments, police say, but she soon returned with two unknown men, who were armed with a hammer and a machete.

The male suspects then entered the store and threatened the cashier, demanding they open the till.

Meanwhile, another employee in the store heard the confrontation and managed to activate the store's panic alarm, forcing the suspects to flee.

One of the suspects did, however, grab an undisclosed amount of money before escaping.

"All three suspects fled the area in a dark-coloured sedan," police said in a release. "No injuries were sustained by any of the employees."

Investigators are now looking for the three suspects and have released the following descriptions:
