Police are searching for three armed men who used cable ties on a pregnant woman and her male colleague during a robbery at the Ballina RSL Bowling Club on Sunday night.

The two staff members were tied up around 8.25pm before the three men robbed the club’s safe.

Police Inspector Nicole Bruce told media that offenders were described as being of Aboriginal appearance and aged in their early 20s.

Inspector Bruce said the first offender was a male of solid build, wearing a grey jumper with a black hood, baseball cap, black track pants with a white strip, grey Nike shoes, gloves and had a white face covering.

The second offender was a male of slim build, wearing a black hooded jumper, a white t-shirt covering his face, black track pants, flat white Converse-style shoes with a blue and red stripe on the sole and gloves.

The third offender was a male of slim build, black hooded jumper, black track pants, dark shoes, a black face covering and gloves.

Inspector Bruce will be making further comments about the robbery to media at midday.

Anyone with information should contact Ballina police on 66818699 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

  1. I bet this turns out to be not what is been alleged here. Read the descriptions of the offenders – especially what they were wearing – and then tell me how the alleged victims knew what the racial make up of the offenders was. Let alone their age.
