POLICE are hunting an armed man following the robbery of a service station in Park Ridge this week.

“The man approached the front counter and waited for the employee to return from the bins, before producing a knife and demanding cash and cigarettes,” Qld Police said in a statement.

The attendant handed over cigarettes and lighters, but the robbery was interrupted when a delivery-truck driver pulled into the car-park.

The man then fled the scene on his bicycle with multiple cartons of cigarettes and several lighters. He was last seen cycling towards Park Ridge Road.

WATCH:

The man is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his 20s, tall, with a slim build.

He was wearing black tracksuit pants, a black long sleeve shirt and black cap at the time of the robbery.
