The operator complied with the demands and the man was last seen heading across Jenke Circuit towards the ACT Remote Control Car Club, with a small sum of cash.
The offender is described as aged between 20 and 30 years old, approximately 183cm tall, large/athletic build, dark tanned complexion, possibly Islander in appearance. He was wearing a black hooded jumper, black tracksuit pants, a black beanie and white gloves with a white T-shirt wrapped around his face, and carrying a black bag.
Police are appealing for the driver of a white or silver hatchback, possibly a Holden Barina, which left the service station a couple of minutes before the robbery to contact them as they may be able to assist with the investigation.
