On the 11-06-15 at around 8.40 pm two male offenders, one armed with a handgun, stormed into a milk bar on Banff Street in Reservoir demanding cash from the loan shop attendant. The shop attendant promptly retrieved a baseball bat from behind the counter and chased the two offenders from the store.
