“An unknown male entered the McMillans Road service station and threatened the console operator with a small pocket knife.

“He was last seen running down Rothdale Road.”

The offender is described as being of Caucasian appearance, approximately 183cm tall and of slim to medium build. At the time of the incident he was wearing dark-coloured shorts, a black long-sleeve shirt and a black cap with a white shirt wrapped around his head.
