Police have renewed their appeal for information after two armed robberies in Sydney’s Inner-West yesterday (Wednesday 13 January).
About 12.30 pm a man entered a pharmacy on Cabarita Road at Cabarita and threatened two female employees with a machete, demanding money.
He was given a quantity of cash before he left the scene in a maroon Mitsubishi Magna parked in a nearby laneway.
A short time later Police were called to a home in Tenterfield Road at North Strathfield.
It appears the same man drove the Magna to the home where he threatened a man and woman inside with the machete, before stealing their car, which was found later in Concord.
About 4.30 pm a man entered a shoe store in a shopping complex on Roseby Street, Drummoyne and threatened the female manager with a machete.
He was given a quantity of cash before he left the scene in a blue XR6 Falcon with registration AXQ 03Y.
