Police seek public help in tomahawk robbery

Queensland Detectives have released CCTV of the armed robbery of a post office in Riverview last year, as they continue to investigate the incident. 

Police say that on Tuesday, November 5 last year at around 2.30pm, two people arrived at the front of the Mitchell Street business in a stolen 2011 Ford Falcon ute – both were wearing masks.

One person exited the vehicle and entered the shop where they threatened the 45-year-old female attendant with a tomahawk and demanded money.

The pair fled the scene in the vehicle with a sum of cash.

The woman was shaken but uninjured in the incident.

The man who entered the post office was wearing a black shirt around his head, a long-sleeved top with the number 29 on it, dark blue tracksuit pants and white shoes with red stripes on them.

He was also carrying a grey duffle bag at the time.

Anyone with further information is urged to contact police.
