Police search for armed robber after video store incident

A HOODED man who robbed two young women at knife point at a Bundaberg video store remains at large.

Bundaberg Criminal Investigation Branch's Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Brendon Steindl said the man entered Leading Edge Video Store in Maryborough St about 8.45pm on Saturday.

He said the man had concealed his face on entering the store, but with the help of the two women, detectives were able to put together a description of the robber.

He has been described as about 175cm tall, with a proportionate build and tanned olive skin, wearing a black, hooded long-sleeved shirt.

Leading Edge owner Trevor Essam said the hold-up had come as a shock to the small business, and the two workers were understandably distraught.

He said there was always a minimum of two staff members working the night shift on weekends, but that security measures would be reviewed, as they often were.

Anyone with information on the robbery can phone Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000 or police on 4153 9066.
