Police are searching for a man in his late 30s to early 40s following an armed robbery at a convenience store on Donald Road in Queanbeyan earlier this week.

At about 10:45 pm on Monday (25 November), a man entered the store armed with a knife. He walked behind the counter and threatened the store attendant before demanding cash and cigarettes.

The attendant complied and the man fled on foot along Fergus Street.

The store attendant sustained no physical injuries as a result of the incident.

A police spokesperson said officers from Monaro Police District attended and established a crime scene.

“We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed a man in his late 30s to early 40s, approximately 180 cm tall, with a tanned complexion, muscular build, wearing a grey/blue hooded tracksuit and sunglasses around the time of the incident,” the police spokesperson said.

Police are urging anyone who may have information or dashcam/CCTV footage around the time of the incident to contact Queanbeyan police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
