Knife threat at video store



A GLADSTONE woman was threatened with a knife after refusing membership to a male person at a local video store on Tuesday night.

Gladstone Police are investigating the incident, which occurred about 8.10pm at the Blockbuster video store, on the corner of Goondoon and Bramston streets.

A police spokesperson said the male person was reported to be between 25 and 30 years old, had a tanned complexion and was of a proportionate build.

He was said to have worn dark coloured pants, a dark blue zip-up jumper and a light coloured cap.

The spokesperson said it did not appear robbery was a motive for the incident, and there had been no physical violence towards the employee, but verbal threats made by the male offender, who was carrying a knife.

A comfit of the offender has been drawn, and police said it would be released after confirmation by the female employee.

Gladstone police are urging anyone with information concerning the incident, or who may have seen someone matching the above description near the Blockbuster video store on Wednesday night, to phone them on 4971 3222 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
