Police investigate attempted armed robbery at Molendinar

Police are investigating the attempted armed robbery of a service station at Molendinar in the early hours of this morning.

Around 1.22am a man has approached the locked entrance doors of the Ashmore Road premises wearing a hoodie and a beanie pulled down over his face.

The console operator requested he remove the beanie prior to him unlocking the doors remotely for him to enter.

The man removed the beanie from his face for a moment to gain entry.

Once inside he threatened the service station attendant with what appeared to be a long bladed style knife in one hand and a crowbar in the other hand and demanded money.

The attendant refused to hand over any cash at which time the man became agitated and hit the counter surface with the crowbar and the front glass window when leaving.

The man left the scene without obtaining any money.

No one was physically injured during the incident.
