ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery which occurred early this morning (Sunday, April 15) in Belconnen.
Around 12.37am a 24-year-old man arrived at his home in Disney Court Belconnen after finishing work. As the man parked in his driveway he was approached by three men. The man had a brief conversation with the group before one of the men produced a knife and made threats towards the victim and demanded cash.
The victim complied with the demand, and handed the man a sum of cash. The group of men also took some of the victim’s motorcycle gear before running off towards College Street in Belconnen.
All three male offenders are described as being Caucasian in appearance and around 16-years-of-age with slim to medium builds. One of the offenders was wearing a grey coloured hooded jumper, tracksuit pants and runners.
