Wanniassa 7 Eleven rolled (now with video)

By johnboy 23 May 2013 17

ACT Policing is investigating an aggravated robbery which occurred in Wanniassa early this morning (Thursday, May 23).

About 1.25am three people entered the 7 Eleven Service Station armed with knives and threatened the staff member, demanding cash.

The staff member complied with their demands handing over a small sum of cash. The offender also took some cigarettes and chocolate bars.

Police believe they left the area in a car parked around 200 meters from the service station.

Detective Sergeant Donna Parsons commended staff for complying with the offender’s demands.

“In these situations it is important for victims to remember their personal safety is of paramount importance. Property can be replaced, people can’t,” Detective Sergeant Parsons said.

All three offenders had black cloth covering their faces and are believed to be young, possibly teenagers.

The first offender was wearing a cap, green camouflaged hooded jumper, grey undershirt, and grey tracksuit pants with white stripes down the side, black shoes and white gloves.

The second offender was wearing a black hooded tracksuit top with white stripes down the sleeves and white gloves.

The third offender was wearing a black hooded jumper, black tracksuit pants with two white stripes down the sides, white sneakers and white gloves.

Anyone who was in the area of service station the time the offence took place and who may be able to assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I reckon these kids’ teachers would be able to identify them – the older one looks pretty distinctive (hair etc) despite the cover up, and their gait would be a giveaway.

I was thinking if there was audio, for sure. Mind you, I would imagine that these kids aren’t much for attending school with any regularity….

So is the barrier over the counter just there for decoration?

Yeah but for say $100, why risk it?

Hand over the no doubt insured $$$ belonging to your employer in a nice cool calm and collected manner (as the servo attendant appeared to be doing) and still get to go home at the end of your shift.

Perhaps, and as someone else mentioned a half decent martial arts person would have no doubt beaten these kids to the ground with one good swift kick, but the problem with a knife is that it’s pretty easy to end up on the wrong end of when it’s just as easy to comply.

Besides that barrier would slow a kids from getting through, but wouldn’t stop them, and at close range, throwing a knife would do a lot of damage to someone.

Nah, looks like a “ghay boy” who likes One Direction.

This band of thugs is an equal opportunity gang of no hopers

White gloves, mask, smokes, small change, very reminiscent of the Spence heist. But, chocolate? They’re getting greedy.

What, not interested in the fruit?

That was just bizarre. They looked about 12.

No, it’s there to discourage the deadsh!ts from jumping the counter and assaulting the cashier. Well done from the cashier handing over the money. Safest thing to do in that awful situation

Yeah pretty much,do you recall how easily the young Brazilian,who was repeatedly tasered and died in Sydney,forced his way through? Security glass counters as seen in banks and some servo’s generally do the trick.

Like c_c™, I would have thought the barrier would have meant a big fail for the robbers. I guess not.

+1. They’re lucky there wasn’t someone there with some basic martial arts training.

I think we should have a mandatory minimum prison sentence for people who use weapons to intimidate and rob people, even juvenile offenders.
