Police are investigating a service station attempted robbery at Ottoway this early this morning.

About 4.30am on Tuesday 28 November, patrols were called to a petrol station on Grand Junction Road at Ottoway after reports of a robbery.

A suspect entered the store and placed an orange bag on the counter, and then he raised a large knife in the air and stated “give me the money”.
