It was one of two reported robberies in Geraldton on Friday.

Just before 3pm, a man and a woman allegedly robbed the Liquorland store at Northgate Shopping Centre.

Police allege the woman took two four-packs of alcohol and the man took a bottle of spirits – and allegedly tried to leave the store without paying.

When confronted by a security guard, the man allegedly swung the bottle toward the guard before leaving the scene.

A 32-year-old Karloo man has since been charged with armed robbery and will face Geraldton Magistrate’s Court today.

A 32-year-old Rangeway woman has been charged with stealing and will appear before the same court on June 29.
