Police have arrested two men in relation to a robbery at a store in Wyrallah Road, Lismore, earlier this week.

Around 6pm on Monday, a worker was at a bakery on Wyrallah Road, East Lismore, when three men entered the store, one of whom was allegedly armed with a knife.

Police will allege the woman was grabbed by the throat and threatened before a sum of cash and a charity tin was taken and the men ran from the store.

They fled the scene in a Suzuki Baleno, which has since been confirmed as stolen.

Yesterday afternoon, police attended a home on Wyrallah Road and arrested a 19-year-old man after earlier arresting a 26-year-old, also from Wyrallah Road.

A search warrant was executed on the home with a number of items seized for forensic examination.

The 19-year-old man was taken to Lismore police station where he was charged with robbery with an offensive weapon as a principle in the second degree and being carried in a conveyance without the consent of the owner.

He was refused bail and will appear at Lismore Local Court today (Wednesday 28 September 2016).

The 26-year-old man was charged with robbery armed with offensive weapon as an accessory after the fact and knowingly dealing with proceeds of crime. He appeared in court yesterday and was refused bail.

Officers from Richmond Local Area Command are continuing their investigations into the robbery and anticipate further arrests.
