Men threaten club staff with knives

Share Canberra's trusted news:

STAFF from the Eastlake Football Club in Griffith were threatened by three men armed with knives on Sunday (July 2). 

The men entered the club on Oxley Street at about 2am through the entrance near the outdoor smoking area on Eyre Street.

The offenders then threatened a staff member and made demands for cash. The victim complied, and the men left the club through the same entrance.

It is believed the offenders then fled the area in a vehicle parked on Oxley Street, driving in the direction of Dawes Street.

The first man is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 178cm tall. The second man is described as 178cm tall. The third man is described as 186cm tall. All three men were of a slim to medium build, with an Australian accent and were wearing gloves, hooded tops and coverings over their faces.

Crime manager, detective sergeant Stephen Ladd asked for anyone who witnessed this incident or saw three men matching this description to contact police.
