A 22-year-old man has faced Maryborough Magistrates Court charged with armed robbery and entering premises with intent after a service station was held up at knifepoint on Friday.

Chris Wayne White appeared briefly via videolink on Monday.

Two addresses were submitted to the court as potential places he would stay if he was to receive bail on the charges.

The police had not yet had a chance to ensure the suitability of the addresses, the court heard.

The case was adjourned until Tuesday.

Police will allege White was one of two men who entered the Caltex Woolworths service station on Adelaide Street in Maryborough about 6.40pm and held up the person working there.

It is alleged a quantity of cigarettes and cash was stolen.

The search for the second accused was continuing on Monday.
