Woman threatened with gun in St Georges Basin robbery

A woman was threatened with a gun during an armed robbery at a newsagency in St Georges Basin on Thursday.

A 61-year-old woman was working in a newsagency on Island Point Road when two men entered the store with their faces covered just before 6am.

The men threatened the attendant with a firearm and took cash.

They ran away on foot and were last seen running in a north-easterly direction.

The shop attendant was not injured during the incident.

Investigators want to speak to two men described as having a thin to medium build, about 175 centimetres tall, possibly aged in their early 20s. They were wearing hooded jumpers – one grey and one dark blue.

Police would also like to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity of the newsagency at the time of the robbery.
