The man armed with a knife entered the servo on Marine Parade around 11.20am on Wednesday.

He was last seen running down High St.

The man is described as 160cm tall and was wearing grey tracksuit pants with a stripe down the side, a dark blue hooded jumper, dark beanie, white socks with blue and white stripe ‘Adidas’ slip-on shoes.
