ACT Policing is investigating a second aggravated robbery in two days where it is believed the same offender is involved.

About 7.30 pm last night, a man and woman were seated in the McDonalds restaurant in Emu Bank when they were approached by a man with a knife.

The offender threatened the pair before fleeing with the phone and wallet of the man.

The offender is described as having an olive complexion, between 30 to 40 years of age, approximately 173cm to 178cm tall (5’8 – 5’10”) with short dark-coloured hair and a medium build. He was wearing a dark cap, white shirt with blue writing on the front, dark track pants and white shoes.

The offender was seen to get into a white, early 2000s model Toyota Corolla hatchback with chrome hubcaps/wheels.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or is able to assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

No. He had fries with it instead.

When the Hamburglar hears someone is muscling in on his turf there will be strife.

Some people just need shooting, and this is a case in point.

This is a crazy person. Armed robbery in a well lit public place in the early evening under many surveillance cams with other people such as the staff members readily to hand. All that risk, for everybody involved, to get away with a phone and a wallet? Total take would be a few dollars cash and instantly cancelled credit cards. It makes no sense at all.

And the penalty if caught is probably a suspended sentence.
