Police are appealing for public assistance after three armed robberies in Sydney’s south west overnight.

About 8pm (Thursday 6 August 2020), a 28-year-old woman was walking on Undercliffe Road, Earlwood, when two unknown men approached her.

One of the men – armed with a knife – threatened the woman before stealing her phone and backpack.

The pair left the scene in a silver sedan. The woman was uninjured.

Officers from Burwood Police Area Command attended and commenced inquiries.

About 8.30pm the same day, a masked man entered a mixed business on McKern Street, Campsie, and threatened the attendant with a hammer.

The man stole cash and cigarettes and fled the store on foot before entering a vehicle, described only as a small silver car.

The employee and his 18-month-old child who was with him at the time weren’t injured.

In a third incident, a man entered a convenience store on Burwood Road, Belmore, and threatened a customer – a 28-year-old man – with a knife, just before 9pm the same day.

The man stole an employee’s phone and ran out of the store before returning seconds later to steal cigarettes. He was last seen running on Redman Parade.

The customer and attendant were not injured.

Officers attached to Campsie Police Area Command attended and commenced inquiries.

Initial inquiries suggest the robberies are linked.

As part of ongoing investigations, police would like to speak to a man who may be able to assist them with inquiries.

The man is described as being of African appearance, between 180cm and 190cm tall, of solid build.

He was last seen wearing a surgical mask, black ‘Nike’ hooded jumper, a white cap, red tracksuit pants and dark runners.

Detectives would also like to speak to a second man over the Earlwood incident. He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his 20s and wearing a grey hoodie and khaki pants.

Investigations are continuing.
