Images have been released of two alleged armed robbers who held up liquor stores in Melbourne's south east with hammers.

In the first incident, two men armed with hammers entered a liquor store at Chandler Road, Keysborough , about 5pm on March 23, demanding cash and cigarettes.

The pair then smashed the counter and a computer monitor before the attendant complied and they fled.

Later that day, a lone offender armed with a hammer entered a liquor store on Police Road, Mulgrave at 5.35pm and threatened the attendant, who was forced to hand over cash.

No one was injured in either incident.
