Appeal after armed robbery – Warwick Farm

Detectives investigating the armed robbery of a Warwick Farm convenience store last month have released CCTV of two men who might be able to assist with their inquiries.

About 4.45pm on Tuesday 19 May 2020, two men entered the store on Mannix Parade and threatened a female staff member with a baseball bat and tomahawk.

The men left the store with cigarettes and cash.

The female attendant was not injured.

Officers attached to Liverpool City Police Area Command attended and established a crime scene.

As inquiries continue, detectives have released CCTV vision of two men who might be able to assist with the investigation.

The first is depicted as being of Caucasian appearance, aged 18-20, between 170cm-180cm tall and of medium build. At the time he was wearing a dark blue hooded jumper, black shorts and white joggers.

The second man is depicted as being of Pacific Islander/Maori appearance, 180cm tall and of medium build. He was wearing a grey hooded jumper, cream-coloured shorts, black socks and grey shoes.

Liverpool City Police Area Command Crime Manager, Detective Acting Inspector Scott Houldin, said detectives need community assistance with the investigation.

“The robbery happened in broad daylight and there might have been people in the area of the shops in Mannix Parade who saw these two men but thought nothing of it,” Det Insp Houldin said.

“We encourage anyone who recognises these men or may have been in the area or who have dash-cam footage, to contact police, as their information might be vital to the investigation,” Det Insp Houldin said.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or Information is treated in strict confidence.
