Two men sought for knife threats in shops

By ZOE SINCLAIRzoe@gladstoneobserver.com.au

GLADSTONE Police want your help to locate these two men. Police yesterday released the computer generated images in an effort to solve two recent armed offences.

Early on the morning of June 29, an armed holdup occurred at a petrol station on Toolooa Street.

At 5.06am a man entered Central Queensland Petroleum (CQP) wearing green pants, a blue and white flannelette shirt, a black bucket hat with a piece of material wrapped around his face.

He produced a knife and demanded money.

He grabbed cash from the till and a packet of cigarettes before leaving CQP and later dumping his clothes. He is believed to be 179cm tall with a slim build and fair complexion.

Earlier this year another man threatened a woman at Blockbuster Video with a knife.

On May 24 a man entered the store but left after failing to meet the criteria for membership.

At 8.10pm he returned with a knife and threatened to cut the female employee.

He did not take money. He was described as about 180cm tall and about 25 to 30 years old.

Senior Constable Kirsty McKenny said police were still investigating the crimes and urged anyone who may have seen the men matching the descriptions or who had information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

'Someone must know something about one of these unsolved robberies,' Snr Const Kirsty McKenny said.

'People are able to remain anonymous and calls are not traced.'
