Release Date: Tuesday, July 03 2012, 06:53 AM
ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery in Kingston (Saturday, June 30).
Police specifically would like to speak to the two women pictured as they may have seen the offender leave the premises.
About 2.30pm on Saturday 30 June, a man entered the Kingston Hotel bottle shop on the corner of Giles and Oxley Streets. He produced a knife and demanded the shop assistant hand over the contents of the till.
The offender then left the bottle shop with a sum of cash. He turned right, heading towards Oxley Street.
The offender is described as Caucasian in appearance, 170cm tall (5’7”) with a medium build. He was wearing a red and black hooded top, blue tracksuit pants with two white stripes down the side and black sunglasses.
Police believe two women who entered the bottle shop soon after may have seen the offender and be able to provide police with information that could assist them in their investigations.
Anyone that saw a suspicious man matching the description of the offender in Kingston is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
