Quick resolution of Ngunnawal robbery

Share Canberra's trusted news:


ACT Policing responded to reports of an aggravated robbery at the IGA Supermarket located on Riley Close in Ngunnawal, yesterday (Monday, 13 June).

At approximately 12.45pm, a male entered the store and produced a large kitchen knife, and made demands for cash. The staff member complied, handing over a sum of cash before the offender exited the store and fled on foot towards Mirrabei Drive.

After viewing the store’s CCTV footage, police were able to identify a suspect.

Police attended the suspect’s residence in Gungahlin, where the offender fled upon seeing police. A short time later the man was apprehended by police and the knife was located in a backpack which was in the man’s possession.

He will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Tuesday, 14 June).
