wo men and a woman are in custody tonight, charged over an alleged crime spree that saw three service stations and a taxi held up at knifepoint in Sydney’s south west.

Police allege the first incident occurred at 11.15pm last night, when a man and a woman caught a cab on Brooklyn Street at Burwood and asked to be driven to Guilford.

The pair allegedly threatened the driver with a knife and demanded cash before fleeing with his mobile.

They are then accused of storming a service station at Woodville Road at Villawood, with another man shortly after midnight. Police allege the group threatened the attendant with a knife and eventually fled with cash and cigarettes.

The trio allegedly targeted another petrol station on the Hume Highway in Lansvale a short time later and again terrorised the attendant.

About 2am, police allege the same group stormed a third service station on the Cumberland Highway. This time the trio allegedly threatened the attendants with a metal pipe and again left with the till.

A short time later, police stopped a taxi on Alinga Street at Cabramatta and arrested two men aged 18 and 20 and a 21-year-old woman.

They were taken into police custody and been charged with robbery.

The trio have been refused bail and expected to front local court tomorrow.
