Initial investigations indicate a man wearing a face covering and gloves entered a service station on Nathan St, Aitkenvale at 9.30pm.
The man was captured on CCTV as he approached a staff member and demanded money, threatening him with a knife before leaving on foot.
He is described as Caucasian in appearance, 20-years-old with an athletic build.
Nothing was taken from the store and no one was physically injured.
