Police appear to have run out of leads in their investigation into the armed robbery of a cafe at Pottsville last week and are now appealing to the public for information.

About 4pm, Thursday 23 February 2012, two women were working in the cafe on Coronation Avenue when a man entered the store via the rear door.

The man, armed with a hammer, confronted one of the women and demanded cash from the register.

He was given an amount of cash and fled the store on foot and was last seen walking around a nearby football oval towards the Community Centre.

The two women were not injured during the robbery.

Detectives from Tweed Heads are conducting investigations into the robbery and are looking for a man who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his mid 20s, 175–180cm tall with short brown hair and wearing a blue long-sleeved collared shirt and light-coloured three-quarter-length pants.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the identity and whereabouts of the man is asked to contact Tweed Heads Detectives or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
