Police are looking for two men on pushbikes who worked in unison to hold-up a Beckenham service station.

At about 11.30pm on Tuesday the 5th of February 2013, two unidentified males rode up to the front doors of a Railway Parade Service Station. Whilst one male stayed with the pushbikes outside, the second male entered the store. Once inside the store the second male pulled out a machete and cloth bag from under his shirt and walked towards the counter. The male banged the machete on the counter and ordered staff to hand over cash from the register and put it in the bag he was carrying. In a courageous act staff refused the males demands. Not satisfied the male banged the machete up and down on the counter and repeated his demands. Fearing for their safety the staff members moved towards the office where they managed to secure themselves inside.

The male then fled the store, failing in his attempt to obtain any cash from the register or safe.

Both males were last seen riding south along Railway Parade.

Police have released a CCTV images of a male who they believe can assist them with their inquiries.
