MITCHELL Crime Investigation Unit detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward with information after a Seymour service station employee was robbed at gunpoint earlier this month.

The offender, described as a Caucasian man in his 20s, was wearing a black cap, black sunglasses, a grey and black balaclava, black Volcom-branded jumper, black pants and black shoes and carrying a black backpack when he entered the service station on the Goulburn Valley Highway at about 7.50am on Sunday, June 20.

Mitchell CIU detective Sikander Sharma said the offender demanded cash from the service station employee.

“The male … produced what we believe was a firearm, or an item similar to a firearm, and then he demanded cash from the service station attendant,” he said.

“The attendant gave him whatever money was in the till, and the offender then left on a push bike heading towards Seymour-Avenel Road.”

Det Sharma said it was an ‘extremely serious’ offence, and appealed for anyone with information about the robbery to come forward.

“If there are any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage who travelled on the Goulburn Valley Highway or Delatite Road in that area between 7am and 9am, we’d like them to make contact,” he said.
