West Albury takeaway held up

TWO armed men held up a takeaway store in West Albury last night.

A female employee at Padman’s Corner Takeaway Store became suspicious after two men, who had their faces covered, entered the store.

She left after spotting one of the men had a knife.

The pair then stole two cash registers and fled to a white Ford Falcon sedan, which was parked on Gulson Street.

The first man was described as Caucasian, in his 20 or 30s, 170 to 175 centimetres tall with a skinny build.

The second man was in his 20 or 30s, 180 to 185 centimetres tall with a medium build and was last seen wearing a dark-hooded jumper.

No one was injured.

Anyone with information is urged to call Albury police.

Meanwhile, a knife-wielding masked bandit has held up a Wagga service station.

Closed circuit television cameras captured the man with a black jumper wrapped around his face demanding cash from the attendant at the Fitzmaurice Street Caltex service station about 12.10am yesterday.

He fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

The man is described as between 25 and 30 years old, 170 centimetres and with a thin build.

The male attendant was shaken but unhurt.

Wagga detectives are investigating.

Anyone with information should phone Wagga Police on (02) 6922 2599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
