ACT Policing is calling for witnesses who may have attended the Caltex Service Station in Kambah last night (Sunday 25 January).
Just before 11.30pm, a man entered the service station on O’Halloran Circuit armed with a knife demanding cash and tobacco.
The man had chocked open the sliding door while waiting for the attendant to place the items into a plastic bag, before fleeing on foot towards Drakeford Drive.
At this time, a white coloured sedan pulled up to the service station and a person entered the store. Police would like to speak to this person as well as several people who attended the store shortly after the incident.
Police are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via https://act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously. We remind people they should not report crime information via our Facebook and Twitter pages.
The HRA says public authorities must respect the cultural rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, but Dr Helen Watchirs says government, authorities and service providers have a long way to go to fully uphold these rights.
