Police are calling for the public’s help over two alleged incidents involving armed men at NSW South Coast clubs.

NSW Police allege a man with a gun approached the Bodalla Bowling Club just before 9:00 pm on 5 June 2021 and threatened a male employee before fleeing.

The employee was not injured and police searched the area but were unable to find the man.

The duo fled after the woman refused to leave the storeroom, allegedly taking her keys and her Holden sedan from the club’s car park.

The woman was not injured and her car was found abandoned nearby in Acacia Place.

A 41-year-old man has been charged for his alleged involvement in the incident at Club Dalmeny and remains before the courts.

Police have now released closed-circuit television footage (CCTV) images of two men and are asking for the public’s help to identify them.
