Police will allege a second man in the store, who was armed with a knife, was in the middle of trying to rob the store.

The pair got into an argument during which the older man was allegedly assaulted and knifed in the back.
The armed man left with nothing and the injured man was treated at the scene by Paramedics and taken to hospital in a stable condition.
The person working at the time was not injured.
Police set up a crime scene.
Then on Wednesday Police were called to a home on Kikori Place, Glenfield, and were told a man had broken in.
A 29-year-old man was arrested at the premises and taken to Macquarie Fields Police Station, where he was charged with attempted robbery armed with offensive weapon, wound with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and enter enclosed lands without consent.
The man was refused bail, to appear at Campbelltown Local Court on Thursday.
