Police search for helmet-wearing alleged armed robber at Footscray convenience store

Police are searching for a motorcycle helmet-wearing man who robbed a Footscray convenience store while armed with an axe.

The alleged theft took place on Sunday, December 12 after onlookers reported seeing a man riding a bicycle past a store on Tiernan Street near Ballarat Road about 7.15pm.

He then approached the counter in the store armed with an axe and demanded cash from the register which the female staff member complied with.

The man eventually rode off, weaving in and out of traffic on Ballarat Road, before travelling north on Hoadley Court.
