Armed robbery appeal at Riverview

Detectives have released CCTV of the armed robbery of a post office in Riverview last year, as they continue to investigate the incident.

On Tuesday, November 5, 2019 around 2.30pm two people arrived out the front of the Mitchell Street business in a stolen 2011 Ford Falcon utility wearing masks.

One person exited the vehicle and entered the shop where they threatened the 45-year-old female attendant with a tomahawk and demanded money.

The pair fled the scene in the vehicle with a sum of cash.

The woman was uninjured.

The man was wearing a black shirt around his head, a long-sleeved top with the number 29 on it, dark blue tracksuit pants and white shoes with red stripes on them.

He was also carrying a grey duffle bag at the time.

Anyone with further information is urged to contact police.
