Police are appealing for public information following an aggravated robbery in Casino on Sunday morning (March 25).

Just before 7am police were called to a service station on Centre Street after reports of a robbery.

Police were told, a 61-year-old man was opening the store when he was approached by three men, armed with a knife and a metal pole.

The men threatened the attendant before he was assaulted and slashed with the knife whilst attempting to defend himself.

One of the men stole an amount of cash before they all fled.

The attendant was treated for a laceration to his face and taken to Lismore Hospital, in a stable condition.

Officers from Richmond Police District attended and established a crime scene.

As investigations continue, anyone with information is being urged to contact police or Crime Stoppers.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/

But now we have hard evidence that we are failing our elders. Some of the data that has been released is shocking. One in five residents have experienced sexual or physical abuse.
