About 9.10pm on Tuesday, a 46-year-old male staff member was leaving the service station on Windsor Parade, when he was approached by three men with their faces covered, one armed with a knife.

The group pushed the service station attendant back into the store and demanded cash and his car key.

They stole more than $350 dollars from the store along with the man’s car key and electronics.

The group met a fourth person outside the service station before fleeing in the man’s silver Ford Falcon. He was not injured.

Officers from the Orana Mid-Western Police District established a crime scene and began an investigation.

The man’s electronic devices were discovered nearby and were seized for forensic examination.

About 3am on Wednesday, emergency services located the stolen car on fire in St Georges Terrace in Dubbo.

As part of inquiries, investigators are urging anyone with information – or dashcam footage from the area at the time – to contact Dubbo Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
