A terrifying night out for two pub patrons, held against their will during an armed robbery at the Toormina Hotel overnight.
Just before midnight four knife-wielding offenders stormed the premises, ordering staff to hand over cash as they were taken to a safe.
The duo visiting the hotel were threatened.
The intruders held a knife against the woman's throat and the man felt a blade at the back of his neck.
The four balaclava-clad thieves then took off with upwards of $35,000.
Anyone with info should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
