ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery that occurred at the Coles Supermarket in Wanniassa last night (11 June, 2016).

About 10.10pm, a male wearing a black bandanna entered the store and approached the service counter.

Armed with a kitchen knife, the male offender demanded a staff member hand over money from the staff member.

The staff member complied with the demands before the male offender fled the area on foot with a sum of cash.

The male offender is described as Caucasian in appearance and between 20-30 years old. He was wearing black tracksuit pants with a white stripe, blue Converse hooded top and black and white sneakers.

Police are urging anyone who may have any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 5972328. Information can be provided anonymously.

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