Second man charged over 2014 armed robbery at Richmond

Detectives have charged a man following an investigation into an armed robbery in Sydney’s north west more than five years ago.

Just after midnight on Saturday 27 September 2014, two men – armed with a handgun and knife – entered a licensed premise on the corner of East Market and Windsor streets, Richmond.

The men threatened a staff member before stealing cash and were last seen running on East Market Street before entering a Holden Commodore sedan on Francis Street.

No one was injured during the incident.

Detectives from State Crime Command’s Robbery and Serious Crime Squad commenced an investigation under Strike Force Braithwaite.

As part of their investigations, a 47-year-old man was charged in July 2019. He remains before the courts.

Following further inquiries, a 39-year-old man was arrested at a Silverwater facility just before 9.30am yesterday (Tuesday 28 January 2020).

He was charged with robbery while armed with dangerous weapon.

The man was refused bail and appeared at Parramatta Local Court yesterday, where he was refused bail to reappear at the same court today (Wednesday 29 January 2020).

Anyone with information that may assist Strike Force Braithwaite investigators is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
