As investigations into Friday morning’s armed robbery at a Narooma service station continue, officers from South Coast Police District have released CCTV footage and believe a number of witnesses might be able to help.

Police report that at about 6 am on Friday (October 25), two men entered a service station on the Princes Highway at Narooma and allegedly used a tree branch, length of timber and a rock to smash electronic equipment before demanding cash and cigarettes from the service station attendant.

The two men fled the scene and were captured on CCTV running through the carpark of the nearby Club Narooma.

“Detectives attached to South Coast Police District established a crime scene and are continuing their investigation into the whereabouts of the two men,” police say.

“Police are now appealing for anyone who may have seen or interacted with two males attempting to hitch-hike in the early hours of Friday (October 25) on the Princes Highway at Narooma.

“The two men police believe can assist with inquiries are described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander appearance, aged 18 to 20, with a thin to medium build.

“Detectives would also like to speak to a woman who may have witnessed or was present during the armed robbery. She is urged to contact South Coast Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”
