MA­CHETE THUGS ROB NEWSAGENCY

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Marissa Ge­or­gopou­los

TWO men armed with a ma­chete forced a de­liv­ery worker to the ground as they robbed a St Marys newsagent last Fri­day.

The thieves cut the front pad­lock of Wal­ters Newsagency, in Mon­farville St, and broke in about 4.30am.

They stole a large amount of cig­a­rettes – some pack­ets cost­ing up to $50 each.

This is the fourth time in two years shop own­ers of 22 years, Sue and Ron Wal­ters, have been robbed. They said the man in the shop at the time, a mem­ber of their de­liv­ery team, was “shaken”.

St Marys police crime man­ager Barry Vin­cent said that police re­ceived a de­scrip­tion of the armed men.

“One was de­scribed as be­ing male, wear­ing a light-coloured scarf, a black long sleeve top, dark coloured track pants and wear­ing a dark­coloured cap,” he said.

“The other man is be­ing de­scribed as be­ing of African ap­pear­ance.”
