Hawker KFC knocked over

By johnboy - 14 November 2011 15

Police are appealing to the public for any information that may be able to assist in their investigation into an aggravated robbery at KFC in Hawker last night (Sunday, November 14).

Around 10pm police were called to KFC in Hawker after a man and woman entered the restaurant, each armed with a knife. The man grabbed a staff member in the restaurant however the staff member was able to break free and ran behind the counter.

The offenders approached the counter and demanded cash. They were handed a sum of cash from one of the tills. The offenders then jumped over the counter and unsuccessfully tried to obtain a further sum of money. They left the restaurant a short time later.

The man is described as about 180 centimetres (5’11”) tall with a slim build. He had a black and white mask with a green hood and dark coloured bandanna wrapped around his neck. He was wearing a dark-coloured loose fitting jacket and dark-coloured tracksuit pants. He was also wearing gloves and spoke with an Australian accent.

The woman is described as having a slim build and long dark brown hair. She was wearing black pants, a black top with a red horizontal stripe and a black balaclava. She was carrying a black bag.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the aggravated robbery at KFC in Hawker last night to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

How much cash would a KFC really have in the tills? No much I’d have thought.

Masks are so that the staff won’t recognize them as regular customers from over the road. Time to go for an all cash free society.

Which is pretty much true with the blocks of old flats literally across the road.

I’ve been to that KFC a couple of times and it’s the only time in my life I’ve ever seen a place that was so squalid that I was compelled to write into KFC head office about it. I’d never written about a place before and I haven’t since. When I wrote in about it, there was garbage on the counter, you could see mass amounts of chips on the floor in various stages of being walked into the tiles. The whole place looked terrible (more so than your average KFC).

Actually the old flates directly across from there have moslty older people in them – not many junkies and what not. Its a quiet block – i used to live there.

The ones the block behind (beetaloo court) on the other hand – well that place is scary day or night

Are you saying that the police should start buying KFC on the off chance that they encounter a robbery? That might just work

On another note, I do not see them encountering a robbery sitting in the police station either. If we need police visibility to deter these scumbags then so be it.

Well clearly that’s the problem… So Police are supposed to be everywhere and just “make arrests” now? How about some evidence? Genius….

So many aggravated robberies recently. Have the cops been able to get hold of anyone? Do they even have suspects? Im scared of going to the shops after dark now, I can barely imagine what the staff at such places would have gone through. Come on AFP, do something. A couple of encounters and arrests would atleast instill some confidence. If only they would spend less time buying milk and donuts from Coles.

Consider the amount of time they spend at Subway and Maccas. Join the dots.

LOL Reading the headline I got this video image in my head of a truck backing into a KFC store and the store falling over! It was very funny. Pity I don’t have an imagination cam…

Seems that all the criminals are starting to wear masks and/or bandannas to cover their faces.
They obviously don’t read ACTP website or RiotAct to know that it is safe not to wear masks in Canberra, as CCTV images are crap.
