Kaleen Caltex rolled with a tyre iron

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses after an aggravated robbery took place at the Caltex service station in Kaleen on Friday night (August 24).

Around 11pm a young man entered the Caltex service station and bought a packet of Tally Ho’s from the shop attendant.

On leaving the service station the man stood at the doorway preventing the automatic doors from closing as a second man entered the service station carrying a cross bar tyre iron.

The offender jumped the counter threatening and demanding that the staff member open the cash register.

The staff member complied with the request and the offender removed a sum of cash and assaulted the staff member before being confronted by a member of the public.

Criminal Investigation’s Detective Superintendent Brett McCann said that the actions of the member of the public should be praised, however cautioned people to think about their own safety.

The first offender is described as Caucasian in appearance, thin build wearing a dark blue ‘hoodie’, light grey tracksuit pants and white sneakers.

The second offender was wearing a black ‘hoodie’, light coloured pants, white shoes and his face was concealed by a dark colour bandana.

“The assault of the staff member was cowardly. The staff member had complied with the demands and there was no reason for this unprovoked assault to take place.” Detective Superintendent McCann said.

Anyone who may have been in the vicinity of the Caltex service station in Kaleen on Friday night and witnessed the aggravated robbery, or knows someone matching the above description is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I cant for the life of me understand why they don’t place at least one security CCTV at eye level at the counter. Least that way the ID of the perpetrator would be clearer. Mind you the one on the OP to the right is one of the better ones I’ve seen lately.

That is a brain teaser, but recalling some of the shots released from the eye level cameras in ATMs, I wouldn’t say it would make a great difference.

Give it a minute guys, we’ve got killer vid coming up.

Seems to get robbed often!!

Kaleen Caltex robbery history:
2009, July 7.
2010, July 26.
2012, August 24

In both cases they were juveniles and were arrested in a few days.
Let’s hope this one is in the bag as well.

Shouldn’t be too hard to identify them with a clear shot like that, but I’m sure a police mug shot would do them more justice.

To attack the “staff member” after they had already complied with the demands seems to indicate someone with serious issues. To rob someone is bad, to bash them afterwards is just f$&%ed.

Hope they go down hard (but don’t really expect it).

Seems to get robbed often!! Dirty mongrels!
