Police arrest three men after armed robbery at Buxton

Three men have been arrested following an alleged armed robbery in the Wollondilly area overnight.

About 9.10pm (Sunday 5 December 2021), police were called to a supermarket on East Parade, Buxton, following reports of an armed robbery.

Officers attached to Camden Police Area Command attended and were told two employees of the supermarket – a 47-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman – had closed the supermarket and were leaving the premises when they were allegedly threatened by three unknown men – one armed with a firearm and one with a knife – in the car park.

The three men demanded cash before the male employee was allegedly stabbed in the hand.

Cash and personal belongings were allegedly stolen from the employees before the three unknown men fled the scene in a white Toyota SUV.

A crime scene was established and an investigation commenced into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Following inquiries, just after 10pm (Sunday 5 December 2021), officers attached to the South West Metropolitan Region Highway Patrol, Dog Unit and Campbelltown Police Area Command, with the assistance of Pol Air, located and stopped a white Toyota RAV4 in an industrial estate on Lancaster Street, Ingleburn.

The three male occupants of the Toyota – aged 38, 37 and 30 – were arrested and taken to Narellan Police Station.

The male employee did not require medical treatment for a minor hand injury.

Investigations are continuing.
