Sy­ringe used in shop rob­beries

The Queensland Times - - NEWS -

PO­LICE are look­ing for a man who they say used a ‘full sy­ringe’ in an at­tempted rob­bery at a Red­bank cos­met­ics store and rob­bery of a sand­wich shop.

Just af­ter 3.30pm on Thurs­day a man en­tered a cos­met­ics store pro­duc­ing a full sy­ringe and de­mand­ing a number of med­i­cal prod­ucts be­fore leav­ing the store empty-handed. About 15 min­utes later, the man went to a take­away sand­wich shop at Red­bank Plaza and pro­duced a full sy­ringe de­mand­ing a sum of money, po­lice say.

The em­ployee com­plied and handed over a sum of cash to the man who then fled the shop.

No one was phys­i­cally in­jured in ei­ther of the two in­ci­dents. In­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing into the armed rob­beries. Po­lice have ap­pealed for any­one with in­for­ma­tion to phone Crime Stop­pers on 1800 222 000.
