Armed robbers terrorise city
January 07, 2006
ARMED robbers have hit a post office, fast-food restaurant and bottle shop in three separate raids in Sydney’s southwest.
Three men wielding firearms entered an Ingleburn post office about midday today, threatening the store attendant and demanding cash.
Police said they had worn helmets to conceal their faces and made their getaways on motorbikes.
No one was injured during the robbery but one witness inside the store was treated for shock, police said.
In another incident, two men forced their way into a liquor store on Brookfield Road at Minto at 9.05pm (AEDT) yesterday, as two staff members were closing up.
Police are also investigating an armed robbery at a fast food restaurant at Punchbowl.
Three men, one armed with a pistol, entered the restaurant on Canterbury Road at 9.45pm.
