Police have captured two more “servo bandits,” arresting the men after they allegedly robbed four petrol stations across Perth’s southern suburbs and Mandurah.
The men were charged by Regional Investigation Unit detectives after they were arrested on Tuesday evening in Greenfields.
Police raided a nearby home on Windermere Way shortly after the arrest and discovered a number of allegedly stolen items.
It will be alleged the men used a tomahawk and baseball bat to rob a petrol station on Pinjarra Rd in Barragup, near Mandurah, around 7.10pm.
A WA police spokesman said the men threatened the attendant, demanding cash and cigarettes with appeared to be a small axe and a bat.
The men smashed a glass display shelf before fleeing with the stolen items.
The second robbery occurred just over two hours later, when the men allegedly used the tomahawk and baseball bat again to rob a service station on Mandurah Road in Lakelands.
The men stole cash and cigarettes after threatening the attendant with a bat and small axe.
Witnesses said the men wore dark coloured beanies, bandannas and sunglasses.
On Tuesday, detectives were advised of two more aggravated armed robberies that occurred at petrol stations in Munster and Spearwood.
This led to the arrest a 21-year-old Greenfields man and a 20-year-old Dawesville man.
The men were each charged with three counts of aggravated armed robbery and one count of attempted aggravated armed robbery.
Both men will face Perth Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
