ACT Policing Criminal Investigation detectives are investigating an aggravated robbery that occurred at the Woolworths store in Calwell last night (Saturday, 26 September).

Around 10.00pm two men armed with knives approached the service counter of the Woolworths store and made demands for cash.

The employee complied with the demands and the two men ran out of the store with a sum of cash that had been placed in a green Woolworths shopping bag. No one was injured during the robbery.

The male offenders were wearing dark clothing, face coverings and gloves.

Minutes prior to the robbery a dark coloured Mitsubishi Magna with two male occupants wearing face coverings was observed near the Calwell Tavern.

Police are urging anyone who may have been in the Calwell area at the time of the robbery and noticed any suspicious activity or who saw a dark coloured Mitsubishi Magna to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information may be provided anonymously.
