ACT Policing has arrested a 21-year-old man following an attempted aggravated robbery at Dominos Pizza in Fyshwick yesterday afternoon (June 5).

Around 5.15pm the man entered the store in Yallourn Street armed with a blood filled syringe. With his face concealed, he demanded an amount of cash from one of the store’s employees.

The male employee refused to hand over any money and instead chased the offender from the store. The employee continued to chase the offender across Canberra Avenue until the offender entered a unit in the Canberra South Motor Park.

A short time later police located the offender at a unit within the caravan park. He was subsequently arrested and taken to the City Police Station.

Detective Sergeant Tony Crocker said that while the victim’s actions contributed to the arrest, personal safety should be fully considered in incidents such as this.

“Although the actions of the employee enabled police to identify the offender and make a quick arrest, the safety of any victim is always our number one priority,” he said.

The man was charged with attempted aggravated robbery and will face the ACT Magistrates Court today.

Full credit to the Dominos guy, who not only stood up to the cretin but chased him down the street.

Not a bad effort for a bloke on (probably) not a lot of money.

Hopefully it is the same guy who did the pharmacy below. Somehow the ACT Police never caught the guy.

Actually we’ve already got syringes in prison. What some of us want is clean needles on them.

Just ban syringes everywhere – problem solved!

It should be noted here that THE ONLY INSTANCE EVER of a syringe being used as a weapon against a prison officer occurred in the absence of regulated access.

As JB noted syringes are already in our prisons including the AMC. If prisoners were going to use syringes as weapons, there’s nothing stopping them from doing so now.

I’m sure there’s plenty of new syringes available to those who legally need them!! As for the drug addicts well if they’re not content with being dispensed methadone to manage their withdrawal symptoms then bad luck.

Oh and as for the attempted robbery the criminal made a very big mistake in targeting the Dominos store coz the guy he demanded money from is rather formidable and could have beaten him to a pulp !!

yes but was it a syring or a needle? or both… cue Ms Bogan fingers and mass hysteria… http://the-riotact.com/giving-4yos-syringes/27203 🙂

I suppose the tax payer provided syringe being wielded during this offence was clean?

Nah, it was full of blood.

if his blood was likely to be any real physical threat the blood bank probably wouldn’t want it.

good point, would hate to see the Dominos at the AMC held up.

And some of you want syringes in prison…

He should have just gone to the blood bank and donated blood.
They would’ve given him some small snacks in return.
