Police investigate armed robbery at Ascot

Police are investigating after a sporting club was robbed in Ascot overnight.

Shortly before 9.30pm, two men wearing balaclavas entered the club on Lancaster Road and approached a male staff member.

One of the men grabbed the staff member and threated him with a screw driver and during an altercation, the staff member was punched in the face by one of the men.

The pair then stole a sum of cash before fleeing the scene in a light-coloured Mercedes sedan which was last seen heading north on Nudgee Road.

The man was treated for minor injuries.
