Armed robbery – Broken Hill

Police are appealing for the public to help with identifying men, who may be able to assist police with inquiries, following an armed robbery at a shop in Broken Hill.

About 10.30pm on Thursday 26 January 2012, two men, one armed with a shotgun, entered the office area of a shop on Brookfield Avenue.

The business was closed at the time and a 60-year-old man was counting money in the office.

The men threatened the 60-year-old man before assaulting him with the shotgun.

They took an amount of money before leaving the premises.

Police from Broken Hill Police Station attended the premises and established a crime scene, which was examined by forensic specialists.

Ambulance Paramedics treated the man at the scene.

The first man, who was carrying a firearm at the time of the robbery, has been described to police as being of large build. He was last seen wearing dark clothing.

The second man is of skinny build and was last seen wearing dark clothing. He was also carrying a duffel bag.
