Knife robbery at the Shabby Attic Cafe

By 13 June, 2012 4

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an attempted aggravated robbery which occurred at the Carleton shops in Kambah yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, June 12).

About 1.30pm a woman entered Shabby Attic café and homewares store on Carleton Street in Kambah armed with a knife. She approached the shop owner and demanded money. After the shop owner refused to hand over any money, the offender grabbed her and a short struggle ensued.

The shop owner managed to push the offender out of the shop and lock the door. The offender was last seen running across Boddington Circuit towards the Kambah ovals.

Detective Superintendent Brett McCann said that your personal safety should always be fully considered in incidents like this.

“There is no point putting your life in danger over any amount of cash or property,” he said.

Police believe that a number of people were walking and driving in the area at the time and may be able to assist with the investigation.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity yesterday afternoon around Carleton Street and Boddington Circuit, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Hope the shop owner is ok, it is a lovely little cafe and I recommend a visit (unless you are a knife-wielding robber).

I feel mislead. Upon reading the topic title, I was anticipating the theft of knives from the cafe, perhaps for use at McDonalds to replace those terrible plastic ones. How disappointed I was.

I know petty crims are usually not too smart, but what sort of moron would choose a store like the Shabby Attic? How much money does he think a tiny place like that would have?

Great little shop though.
