ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an armed robbery which occurred in Calwell on Sunday night (February 15).

At about 9pm a male entered the Woolworths service station at the Calwell shopping centre, where he threatened a console operator with a large knife before fleeing with a sum of cash.

Shortly before this at around 8.50pm, a man was seen acting suspiciously around the McDonalds and Woolworths petrol station at the Lanyon Marketplace in Conder.

The man is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his 20s, with a skinny build. He was wearing a blue jumper with a grey hood, black tracksuit pants and carrying a black bumbag.

Police believe the man fled on foot to a waiting car, parked nearby in Roope Close, Calwell.

Police request anyone who may have seen this man or has any information that may assist the investigation to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

You see clearer pictures from the planet mars. Couldn’t they help the plod by installing better cameras. And the other thing that gets me is the cameras are up high, so the perp ( I’m hip on the lingo ) is hidden by the hoodie . Why not down eye level, hidden inside a empty something.
