Hang on, he ‘claimed’ to have a knife.

Shouldn’t the beginning of negotiations have been, “well, can I see it, cause if not, I’m off you little weedy tospot”.

Secondly, way to go minature Pacific Islander or Maori in appearance guy. You’re going to get yourself an armed robbery sheet for a packet of cigs and an enery drink; f%^$wit tool.

No need to be politically correct about it. That right there describes a mullet..

Apologies to the victim but lol. You gotta be pretty desperate to mug someone for a opened pack of cigs and a energy drink

It’s them energy drinks! Kids these days are fiends for them!!

Also, ACT Policing, there is no IGA in Richardson. There is a SupaExpress, could you have meant that?
