A service station in Nambucca Heads was the latest target in a spate of armed robberies on the Mid North Coast.

Shortly after 7pm on Tuesday, a man entered the back door of the Mann St service station as the female attendant was taking rubbish outside.

The man pushed the attendant over and threatened her with scissors while demanding cash.

She was able to get up and ran back into the store with the man following her to the console area.

A short time later the man fled the location with an amount of cash and the attendant’s wallet.

Nambucca Police were contacted and launched an investigation into the incident. A crime scene was established at the service station and was examined by detectives.

The man is described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander in appearance and about 160cm tall with a muscular build.
