Robbed at knife-point


By Taylah Eastwell

A man had a knife pulled on him in Mt Evelyn over the weekend.

A 25-year-old male was reportedly approached near the rotunda behind Mt Evelyn IGA by an offender who pulled a knife and made demands for cash about 4pm on Saturday 22 May.

With the help of township CCTV, police were able to obtain images of the offender and establish his identity.

A 27-year-old Mt Evelyn man was arrested around 8.30pm the same day, with police also locating the knife during a search.

The man has been charged with armed robbery and other related offences and will face court later this week.
