ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery that occurred in Wanniassa yesterday (Sunday, 24 July 2016).

Around 8.30pm two males entered the Red Rooster restaurant on the corner of Langdon Avenue and Rylah Crescent, Wanniassa and approached the front counter.

They demanded the attendant open the cash register and when the request was refused they threatened to assault the attendant.

The attendant complied with the offender’s demands and the two males left the restaurant with a small amount of cash.

The two male offenders were seen getting into a late model Toyota Camry sedan with no registration plates driving along Athlon Drive, Wanniassa.

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 5990451. Information can be provided anonymously.
