Po­lice ap­peal on rob­bery

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Front Page -

Po­lice have asked any­one with in­for­ma­tion about an armed rob­bery at a Hor­sham ser­vice sta­tion in the early hours on Sun­day morn­ing to get in touch.

De­tec­tive Se­nior Con­sta­ble Neale Roberts of Hor­sham Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Unit said last night peo­ple could ei­ther call de­tec­tives on 5382 9200 or Crimestop­pers on 1800 333 000. De­tec­tive Roberts said in­ves­ti­ga­tions were con­tin­u­ing into the in­ci­dent that in­volved a man armed with a base­ball bat en­ter­ing Hor­sham’s Bail­lie Street Cal­tex ser­vice sta­tion.

He con­firmed the man had threat­ened an at­ten­dant while de­mand­ing cash and cig­a­rettes.

De­tec­tive Roberts said the in­ci­dent oc­curred be­tween 5.25am and 5.45am and the man had left the sta­tion on the cor­ner of Bail­lie and Urquhart streets on foot and had headed to­wards Hor­sham’s Cen­tral Busi­ness Dis­trict.

“We’re ask­ing any­one who might have wit­nessed or who might have in­for­ma­tion about what happened to come for­ward,” he said.
