Armed bandits robbed a Springvale service station in a midnight raid.

Police said two people entered the BP on Heatherton Road about 11.45pm on Monday 4 July.

One stayed in the doorway to keep the automatic doors open while the other approached the attendant behind the register.

He demanded cash from the 26-year-old attendant after producing what police described as “an edged weapon” from the front of his pants.

The attendant handed over the entire tray from inside the register, which contained about $400, and both bandits fled on foot.

Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 with any information.
