Manhunt for metal bar wielding robber

It was a scary night for three people in Southport as an armed robber targeted a petrol station.

Police believe the offender jumped the counter of the Ferry Road business at around 9:15pm on Monday, waving a metal bar at two staff members.

He then demanded them to hand over cash before escaping with the money.

It's believed the robber then tried to carjack a woman parked on Zircon Street, and opened her door before she sped off.

Police have been reviewing CCTV footage of the incident.
