Islander waits in queue, robs post office

May 14, 2008, Herald Sun:

A KNIFE-WIELDING robber stood in line with customers and waited his turn before holding up a central Sydney post office, police say.

The robber entered the post office on the corner of Castlereagh and Park streets at 3pm (AEST) today and joined the queue, police said.

When it was his turn, the man pulled out a metal kitchen knife and jumped the counter ...

The man is described as being of Pacific Islander appearance, of solid build, about 183cm tall and aged in his 20s.

He was said to be wearing white rugby shorts with a black stripe down each leg and a dark blue hooded jumper with "60" on the back and yellow and white writing on the front.

Any witnesses are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
It's in the bottom right of the picture, next to the Central Park Hotel on Castlereagh street.
