The men demanded money and assaulted one of the staff members before leaving the store with a sum of cash.

Police are urging anyone who was in the Kaleen Plaza area at around 6.50pm and saw two Caucasian men wearing light coloured hoodies, light coloured track pants and black balaclavas, driving a white coloured sedan, to contact police.

It’s ridiculous how often that BWS is hit!! I can only assume it’s due to the quality of the locals (hello neighbours!) and easy access from the street, with multiple escape routes.

I can’t believe they haven’t installed some kind of security barrier around the registers.
