kambah robbery kambah

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery at a service station in Kambah where a knife was produced.

About 10.30pm on Friday, May 25, a man entered the Caltex Service Station on O’Halloran Circuit, carrying a large cleaver style knife and demanding cash from the console operator.

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.

Anyone who was in the area of the service station or Jenke Street and witnessed suspicious behaviour is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I am suggesting they sound like a similar bloke. Obviously there are some small differences in the descriptions, but I would guess the victims didnt have the time to ask the villain if it was a tshirt or a bandana that was across his face.

Just seems like a lot of similarities in the descriptions as well as the way the crimes were committed.

djk, you’re trying to suggest they’re all the same bloke, but one is described as slim, another as large/athletic. One is described as “possibly islander” and another as caucasian. One was wearing a white bandana, one wearing a tshirt across his face, and another wearing a skull-patterned mask.

I’m pretty sure that *every* male between the ages of 13 and 50 has a black/dark hoodie in their wardrobe, and 182cm is only a smidge over average male adult height.

Well it is not just 6′ and a knife, there is also the dark hoodie, gloves, and white face covering.

“The man is described as approximately 6 foot (182cm) in height, with a slim build. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded jumper and dark coloured pants, white gloves and shoes. He had his hood pulled up with a white face covering underneath.”

“The man is described as being Caucasian in appearance, and around 6’ (183cm) tall. He was wearing a grey hooded jumper, black tracksuit pants and gloves. He had a white bandanna covering his face.”

“The man was described as around 5’11” – 6’3” (180cm-190cm) in height with a solid build. At the time he was wearing a black ‘hoodie’ and tracksuit pants, white sneakers and white gloves. His face was concealed by a black and white skeleton mask.”

And all since 25 May…

Could be my imagination, but:

All seem pretty similar??

Yes djk, they do… The AFP’s media release page has dozens of similar incidents where they baddie had a knife and was about 183cms tall:

I wonder what Simon ‘Batman’ Corbell has to say about this?
