A KNIFE-wielding, masked man robbed the Woolworths store at the Erindale Shopping Centre last night.
Police say the man entered the centre at about 9.15pm and, armed with a knife, demanded money from a staff member at the front of the Woolworths store before entering the counter area and removing a till. He then fled the area with the till in the direction of a rear cark park.
The suspect is described as being 170-175cm tall, of slim build, wearing grey track pants, a black hoodie, one red and one white glove and a white, cloth face mask.
Police are calling for anyone who may have information to call 1800 333000, or via actcrimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
"Anything in public hands is seen by 21st century governments as land banks for development… locally such dubious practices are now entrenched as building the new normal within the ACT Labor/Greens coalition," writes "Canberra Matters" columnist PAUL COSTIGAN.
