A BONNIE and Clyde-style pair of robbers held-up a Shell service station in Narre Warren at knifepoint on Sunday morning.

Police spokeswoman Amelia Penhall said the couple arrived at the servo on Narre Warren North Rd in a dark-coloured four-wheel-drive vehicle about 12.50am.

The woman, armed with a knife, demanded cash while the man stood guard at the entrance.

“The attendant handed over a quantity of cash and the pair fled in the 4WD,” she said.

The vehicle had a bull bar, roof racks and a tyre mounted on the rear.

Ms Penhall said nobody was injured during the incident.

The man is believed to be of caucasian appearance with dark hair and probably in his late teens.

At the time, he was wearing a white two-tone long-sleeved top with a black hood, dark track pants and dark sneakers.

The woman is described as between 18-20 with an olive complexion. She was wearing a white hooded top, dark-coloured track pants with a thin vertical stripe and had a scarf or cloth covering her nose and mouth.

Anybody with information about the armed robbery is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or visit
