Share Canberra's trusted news:


ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to two armed robberies that occurred last night (Monday, March 23) in Belconnen.

Around 9.45pm two males smashed the locked front glass door at Kingsley’s Chicken, Rae Street, and entered, armed with knives.

One male guarded three customers, who were still inside the restaurant, while the other entered the kitchen area, taking money from the float and three mobile telephones belonging to staff members who had fled out of a side door.

The two offenders left in a white Hyundai hatchback and drove a short distance to the Canberra Cellars ‘Bottle-O’ on the corner of Luxton and Josephson Street, Belconnen.

The two offenders entered the bottle shop and stole a sum of cash and cigarettes from the attendant before leaving in the direction of Southern Cross Drive.

The first male was wearing a light blue baseball cap, black and white skull face mask, a black hooded jumper with a white motif on the front, black track pants and black shoes.

The second male was wearing a blue hooded jumper, black and white skull face mask, grey track pants and white shoes.
