Police appeal on robbery
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.
