Young girl ‘shaken’ after armed thief holds up bakery
A YOUNG girl is shaken up after she was robbed by a man with a knife this morning.
Police were called to Crust Bakery at Mountain Creek just before 8am after a thief demanded money from the staff member.
The man fled from the Karawatha Dr business on foot and was last seen running towards Molakai Dr with a small quantity of cash from the bakery.
Inspector Matt Robertson said no one was physically injured during the robbery.
"But she (the employee) would be shaken up, I imagine," he said.
Joel Reed works at the Lucky7 convenience store in the same complex and said he was there at the time of the robbery.
"It is a little scary," he said. "I was in there just five minutes earlier talking to her, but I didn't see anything.
"It was pretty hectic for sure, to have it right next door."
Inspector Robertson said police were investigating the incident.
The robber is described as wearing a long sleeve jumper and long pants.
Anyone with information or dashcam vision from Karawatha Dr or Molakai Dr is urged to contact police.
