ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery outside the Commonwealth Bank in Fyshwick in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday, November 1).
Around 12.40am, a man had parked outside the bank on Collie Street and was withdrawing funds from the external ATM when he observed a small to mid-sized white vehicle pull up behind his car.
The man was approached by a woman who threatened him with a knife, at one point holding the weapon to his neck. A scuffle ensued during which the victim suffered cuts to his hands and cheek. The altercation ended when a man approached the pair and punched the victim in the nose.
The man and woman then demanded the victim withdraw more money from the ATM, however after several attempts the machine rejected the key-card and the offenders made off with a sum of cash.
Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the aggravated robbery in Fyshwick last night to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.
