The owner of Bunter’s We Never Sleep Newsagency and Delicatessen was given an early morning wakeup call when an armed bandit using a t-shirt wrapped around his head to conceal his appearance entered the store.
Around 3.33am on Monday the 1st of August 2011, the owner was stocking the fridge when a male armed with a samurai sword entered the deli and traversed the front counter. Seeing the potential for violence the owner ran from the store to seek help from the deli owner opposite. The male attempted to open the first till but was unsuccessful prompting him to try the second till containing the days float, which he grabbed a handful of notes from and jumped back over the counter before running from the store in the direction of Kent Street. 
Detectives have released and image of the male in the hope that someone maybe able to identify him.
