A Mulgrave Rd petrol station attendant endured a terrifying ordeal and was forced to hide in a panic room after police allege a would-be robber stormed the shop armed with a star picket.
Police allege the Aurukun man entered the BP servo at 400 Mulgrave Rd and threatened the attendant with a star picket before demanding money, at 8pm.
The attendant activated a personal security alarm and retreated to a secure room before the alleged offender fled the area empty-handed.
Soon after the alleged armed robber absconded from the servo police arrived at the scene and located the 28-year-old man in the area.
The 28-year-old man has been charged with one count each of attempted armed robbery and possession of suspected stolen property.
The man was remanded in custody to appear before Cairns Magistrates Court on Friday, December 29.
