Around 2.30pm on Saturday 27 October 2018, a man rode on a bicycle to a shopping centre on Treasure Road in Queens Park. He walked into a retail store and got a drink from a fridge. He took the drink to the counter and gave coins to the staff member.
As the staff member opened the register, the man produced a bladed weapon and demanded cash from the register. The staff member refused and the man ran from the store.
He was seen to get back onto the bicycle and ride away, narrowly missing being hit by a car in the process.
Police have released CCTV footage of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The man is described as: Fair skinned, 18-25 years of age and a thin build. He was wearing a yellow cap, sunglasses, light coloured short sleeve dress shirt over a long sleeve dark coloured top, long dark coloured pants and dark runners. He was riding a dark coloured mountain bike.
