Men on the run after robbing video store armed with machete & hammer

Two men are on the run after robbing a Coffs Harbour video store armed with a machete and hammer.

Just before 8.00pm, two staff members were closing the store on Park Avenue, when a man armed with a machete ran inside demanding money.

The staff complied and handed over cash from the till, whilst a second man armed with a hammer waited outside.


The pair then took off on foot.

An investigation into the frightening robbery is now underway. Anyone with information is urged to come forward.
