It’s alleged a man armed with a sawn-off shotgun entered the The West End hotel and bottle shop where he threatened staff and stole money from the till. 

Police allege a second man armed with a machete stood out the front of the hotel, before they took off in a blue Holden Commodore sedan.

The offender armed with the shotgun is described as being Caucasian and about 183cm tall wearing a black bandana covering his face and a black hat. 

The second offender is described as being Aboriginal, aged in his 20s and was wearing a black Adidas jumper. 

It’s understood no one was injured.
