The male offender attempted to access the till but was unsuccessful and fled the scene on foot. The offender was described as being of African appearance, about 180cm tall and was wearing a beanie, black and white bandana, dark coloured top and dark coloured pants. Detectives from the Armed Crime Squad are appealing for anyone with knowledge of the armed robbery to come forward.
