ACT Policing has released CCTV footage of a knife-wielding man robbing the North Lyneham Mini Mart on Saturday, 17 March.

Police said that about 12.40 pm, the man entered the shop on Colville Street, where he threatened the cashier with a kitchen knife and demanded cash.

The cashier handed over money from the register, and the man fled on foot, crossing Cossington Smith Drive in the direction of Ginninderra Drive.

The man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 165-170cm (5’5” to 5’7”) tall and of skinny build with dark brown hair just above shoulder-length and a thin moustache.

He was wearing a ‘Red Bull Racing’ brand cap, a black jacket with white stripes on the cuffs and waistband, black trousers or jeans and black sneakers. He was carrying a black and grey backpack.

Police are urging anyone who may be able to identify the offender or who has any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via act.crimestoppers.com.au

North Lyneham is a crime hotspot, that poor shop gets hit all the time. I have door-knocked past houses extremely well-known to police, that are provided to these people by taxpayers, yet could only be described as hovels. Nothing is done about known criminals living in this suburb who could easily be tracked and busted using stolen credit cards and CCTV. When a handbag gets stolen the police and banks say you’ll get your money back, yet disregard the cost of the handbag, the contents, the time to replace, the inconvenience and the trauma. Police don’t respond for hours, despite you telling them EXACTLY where your phone is from tracking app. Just a joke, and so frustrating that one is tempted to round up the troops and take matters into ones own hands. I think with the tracking now so accurate, we might start seeing more of this type of response.
