Armed robbery at the Kingston Post Office.

By johnboy - 4 May 2011 4

We’re waiting for a statement from Police but this in from a witness to a robbery this afternoon at the Kingston Post Office:

was waiting in line at the post office, crazy guy with a stocking over his head comes in waving a butchers knife at the cashiers and makes them give him all the money, then he leaves.

This in from a Police Media spokesperson with more to come:

Officers at the scene, and witness interviews underway. Appears it was two male offenders, and a knife used to threaten staff.

UPDATE: This account in from a witness who was waiting for his girlfriend outside the post office:

S***box purple Hyundai Excel pulls up in the loading dock driveway on Jardine St to let a tall, lanky white male out. (can’t really say whether he was caucasian or asian because every part of his body was covered except his hands. had white hands) long pants, long-sleeved jumper on, stocking over his head.

He races into the store, I call 000 and get out of the car to try and get a better look at the car rego.

ACT rego, but then proceeded to drive around the back of the building before I could get a good look.

Then heard a ‘bang’ – worried it was a handgun but then my girlfriend came out to say that it was all over, so I guess it must have been the back door.

The car never came up Giles St again so I reckon they drove round through the loading dock from Jardine through to Giles, then headed south onto Wentworth Ave to make their getaway.

He got out of the car with a green re-useable shopping bag to put his loot in.

What’s Your opinion?
