Attempted Armed Robber With A Conscience

A 21-year-old Cambooya man is due in front of a Toowoomba court today after attempting to hold up a Perth Street convenience store.

The incident happened around 4:30PM yesterday afternoon.  The man threatened the male staff member with a knife and demanding money.

The staff member made his way to a back office and phoned police. The man fled the store.

The offender’s conscience got the better of him with the man later turning himself into police.

He's been charged with one count of attempted armed robbery and entering a premise with intent.
