Bunbury Detectives appeal for witnesses to Carey Park robbery

Bunbury Detectives have appealed for witnesses following an armed robbery at a newsagency in Carey Park on Friday morning, October 18.

According to police, the two offenders allegedly entered Carey Park News on Frankel Street about 8.10am, armed with a knife and a hammer.

One offender approached the counter before climbing over it and demanding cash of the store attendant.

The two men, both of which were wearing dark coloured clothing and had their faces covered, allegedly stole a quantity of cash and scratch and win cards before departing the premises on foot towards Wiseby Street.

Detective senior constable Rob Travers confirmed the two offenders remained outstanding and urged witnesses to be brave and come forward.
