About 10pm, on Tuesday February 28, two men, aged 25 and 35, attended Butler Road at Bonville to meet a man and purchase a quad bike and dirt bike.

They were met by three men, armed with rifles, who threatened them and demanded cash.

During the incident one of the men was struck with the rifle before the armed men stole cash and fled in a white 1990 model Nissan Pintara.

The two men returned to their vehicle and gave chase following the Nissan towards Glenniffer Road where a number of shots were fired at their vehicle.

The stolen Nissan Pintara was later located in Gleniffer Road and seized by police for forensic examination. An amount of blood located inside the vehicle is now being tested for DNA comparison.

Detective Senior Sergeant Peter O’Reilly from Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command said investigations were advancing but police still need public assistance.

“Detectives are interested in hearing from anyone who saw the white Nissan Pintara in the vicinity of Butler and Glenniffer Road during the evening of Tuesday, February 28.

“We have released photographs of the Nissan and hope someone might have seen the car parked or being driven around the area and have information about who was driving it.

“There is a possibility that those involved in the robbery may have been injured and attended local medical centres or chemists for treatment or medical supplies.

“Anyone with friends or family who had unexplained injuries around this time is urged to contact police,” said Detective Senior Sergeant O’Reilly.

A 24-year-old Armidale man is currently before the courts for his alleged involvement in the robbery.

He was charged with robbery in company whilst armed with a dangerous weapon and was due to appear in Coffs Harbour Local Court yesterday (Tuesday, July 24).

Anyone with information about the robbery or who saw the stolen Nissan is asked to contact Coffs Harbour Detectives via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Members of the public are reminded that all information provided will be dealt with in the strictest confidence and they may remain anonymous.
