Police investigate armed robbery at Edens Landing

Police are investigating the armed robbery of a convenience store at Edens Landing this morning.

Around 8.00am, two men with their faces covered entered the business located within a shopping complex on Castile Crescent. One was armed with a firearm and the other with a wrench.

The men threatened the 17-year-old male employee, handed him a bag and demanded he fill it with cash and cigarettes. The attendant complied.

Meanwhile, the 32-year-old manager overheard the robbery from out back, armed himself with a mop and rushed at the two men.

The man armed with the firearm struck the manager in the upper arm with his weapon, before the two men fled with a quantity of cash.

The men were last seen getting into a dark-coloured vehicle parked nearby on Pendlebury Court, before driving towards Logan River Road.

The manager sustained mild bruising to his upper arm. No one else was injured during the robbery.

Investigations continue.
