Syringe robbery in Dickson

By johnboy - 11 August 2011 10

ACT Policing are investigating an aggravated robbery at a service station in Dickson late this morning (Thursday, August 11).

Around 11.30am, a man armed with a syringe entered the Woolworths petrol station on Dickson Place and approached the front counter. He threatened and demanded cash from an employee.

The man left the service station on foot with some cash. No one was injured during the aggravated robbery.

The man is described as Caucasian in appearance, approximately 180 cm (5’11”) tall, aged in his mid twenties with a slim build. He was wearing a dark coloured jumper and jeans, and was last seen heading towards the Dickson Tradies underground car park.

A number of witnesses are believed to have been inside the service station at the time of the robbery, and police are keen to speak with these witnesses.

Anyone who may have witnessed the aggravated robbery, or saw a man matching the above description in the Dickson area around 11.30 this morning are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Dickson is turning into a real toilet. The other night I was meeting friends there for dinner and I nipped into Woolworths to get some things before hand, there was a junkie looking beggar outside each entrance pleading and wheedling for spare change. Sickening. Is this a third world country now?

That guy is there 2-3 times a week, I reckon. Sits right at the doors with his hat out – other than some people’s sensibilities being offended, he doesn’t cause any harm and doesn’t (in my experience) abuse or threaten anyone. I wish him all the best in his obviously poor lot in life.

Was a friend of mine on the receiving end of this. Informs me that everyone involved is OK and the police are taking it very seriously. And it was a needle.

Amazingly, apart from being in the middle of the day, there were people queuing behind the scrote who did not even twig to what was going on.

I saw they had a security guard on site today.

Just to be clear, are we talking syringe or needle ? (http://the-riotact.com/giving-4yos-syringes/27203)

If it was a needle, let’s just hope it was from one of the needle syringe programs.
We wouldn’t want anyone to get a blood-borne disease! Oh, wait…..

There’s also a Caltex (Woolworths) one on the corner across from The Tradies. I think that’s the one they mean.
