It happened at the Castelle Service Station on Sherwood Street at about 7.20am on Saturday August 5, when two men threatened staff and demanded money from the till.

A member of the public who saw what was happening grappled with the robbers to try to stop them leaving, but they managed to get away on foot with a sum of money. The member of the public suffered minor injuries during the struggle.

Police officers recovered an air pistol at the scene.
