Police hunt after Koonawarra armed hold-up

Police are hunting two men who stole cash and bourbon in an armed hold-up of a Koonawarra liquor store last night.

About 7.20pm two men wearing dark clothing and masks entered a liquor store at Parkside Plaza in Koonawarra, police said.

One of the men, carrying a black bag, approached the counter and demanded cash from a female employee.

The man then pulled out what was believed to be either a knife or syringe and again demanded money.

The employee handed over a sum of money, and one of the men then stole two bottles of bourbon from a shelf.

The pair then ran from the store, heading north towards Fowlers Road.

Detectives from Lake Illawarra Local Area Command are investigating the armed robbery and are keen to speak to anyone who may have information about it.

People with information can call Crime stoppers on 1800 333 000.
