Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a robbery at the Suffolk Park service station on Saturday overnight.

About 9.30pm (Saturday 18 July), a man entered the Broken Head Road service station at Suffolk Park, and demanded money from the 52-year-old employee at the front counter, indicating he had a weapon.

The man jumped the counter and struggled with the male employee, before taking cash from the register and running from the scene.

Police were called and a crime scene was established.

Police believe several people were in the immediate area at the time and are appealing for anyone who witnessed the robbery to call Byron Bay Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
