Bandit attacks servo with hammer

By Cam Lucadou-Wells

A would-be robber armed with a hammer has tried to smash his way into a Caltex service station in Police Road, Springvale early on Tuesday 16 April.

A lone attendant hid in a rear storeroom as the male offender bashed at the front locked door about 1.40am.

The male was unable to get inside. He smashed the after-hours counter window, then ran away.

A Dog Squad unit tracked the male’s escape to an alleyway in Lee Avenue before losing the scent.

The male was described as wearing a striped hoodie that covered his head and face.

Any information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or crimestoppersvic.com.au, or Greater Dandenong CIU on 9767 7487.
