POLICE are investigating the armed robbery of a licensed premises at Crescent Head on Sunday night.

Two staff members were leaving the tavern on Main St about 9.30pm when they were confronted by two males, who had their faces covered.  

The employees were threatened with a knife and a tyre-lever before being forced back inside the tavern and made to lay on the ground.

A third member of staff was then threatened with the knife and forced to open the safe.

The armed men stole cash from the safe.

They then unsuccessfully attempted to break into a poker machine and fled the premises.

No one was injured during the robbery.

Police were called and attended the tavern where they established a crime scene, which was examined by specialist forensic officers.

Detectives from the Mid-North Coast Local Area Command are investigating the robbery and believe up to four males may have been involved.

One of the males is described as wearing a balaclava while another was wearing a hooded top and had a handkerchief covering his face.

Anyone who witnessed the robbery or has information about the identity and whereabouts of the males is asked to contact Kempsey Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
