Offender Grabs Staff By Neck in Armed Robbery in Kempsey

Police have appealed for information from the community after an armed robbery at South Kempsey in the early hours of Monday morning.

About 2:10am, two offenders, one armed with a knife, entered a restaurant and walked behind the counter.

One man grabbed one of the four staff members by the arm, and then by the neck, demanding cash.

The two offenders then removed a quantity of cash and fled from the premises in a white mid-1990's Toyota Landcruiser 4WD.

The two male offenders are described as wearing hoodies, gloves and their faces covered.

One man was about 183cm tall with a stocky build and a scar on the right cheek.

The second man was 178cm tall, with a slim build, blue eyes and was armed with a knife.

Staff were not physically injured, just shaken from the ordeal.

Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to contact Crime Stoppers immediately on 1800 333 000.
