He is said to have entered the store yelling “I want $100, and I have a knife”.

The deli’s CCTV footage captured a man wearing a black hood directing the knife towards the staff member and the cash register before stealing all the cash from the till.

A man has been charged with armed robbery and his bail was refused. He faced Northbridge Magistrates Court on Thursday.

Det-Sen Sgt McDonald thanked community members who contributed information and asked anyone with further information to come forward.
