ACT Policing is investigating an attempted aggravated robbery at the Friendly Grocer store in Lyons last night (Thursday, 17 September).

About 10.00pm, a man brandishing a knife entered the store on Devonport Street demanding cash from the attendant. As he made the demands, he was disturbed by a customer.

The offender then fled the scene without taking any cash or property, running in a southerly direction towards a nearby pedestrian underpass.

The male is described as Caucasian, approximately 175cm (5’9”) in height with a thin build. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a black jacket, black pants and was covering his face with a mask.

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 act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Police remind people they should not report crime information via Facebook and Twitter pages.
