Police are appealing for public assistance after an armed robbery at a South Murwillumbah service station earlier this month.

About 8.45pm on Saturday March 3, a man armed with a machete entered the service station on Tweed Valley Way, threatening the attendant and a male customer.

The armed man stole cash and cigarettes before leaving.

No one was injured during the incident.

Detectives from Tweed/Byron Police District are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dash cam footage from Tweed Valley Way, to come forward and contact Tweed Heads Police.

Inquiries suggest the armed man may have travelled to the service station on a bicycle.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
