A man will be charged with aggravated robbery after allegedly using a knife to demand cash from a woman at Florey shops last night, police say.
ACT police issued a statement this morning saying a 28-year-old man would face court today after the incident last night.
“About 7.30pm a woman was leaving the Florey shopping centre when she was approached by a man. The man demanded cash while pointing a knife towards the woman. The woman handed the man a sum of cash after which he walked back towards the shopping centre,” police said.
“A short time later police attended the Florey shopping centre and located the alleged offender. He was subsequently arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House.”
