The offender then ran out of the store towards Moorooduc Road.

He is perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, around 40-years-old, 183cm and medium build.

He was wearing a black hoodie top, a black beanie and a black scarf covering his face.

He also wore a black coloured glove with white motif on his right hand only, faded blue denim jeans which had a darker blue hem at the top of each rear pocket and black leather shoes.

Detectives have released a CCTV image of a man they wish to speak to in relation to the incident.

Investigators are seeking information about the armed robbery and are particularly keen to speak to a customer who attended the store immediately before the offender and purchased a 8.5kg “Swap and Go” gas bottle.
