Hunt continues for Coffs bandits

DO you know who these two unsavoury characters are?

Detectives have released this CCTV footage of the armed bandits leaving Network Video in Coffs Harbour's Park Avenue back on June 11.

The pair was brandishing knives and stormed into the store where they threatened two female staff members and two female customers at 8.10pm.

They fled on foot with money from the cash register.

Both are described as Caucasian in appearance, in their late teens and with slim builds.

One was about 185cm tall and wearing dark jeans, a blue T-shirt and a red T-shirt wrapped around his head.

The other was about 180cm tall and wearing black pants, a black hooded jacket and a black cap.

Police have also released detailed descriptions of four knife-wielding youths who held up the Tank 'n' Tummy service station on the Pacific Highway at Boambee on June 1.

At 5.20pm they threatened two women, stole cash and cigarettes and were seen running towards scrub on the northern side of Bruce King Drive at Boambee East.

Aged in their mid-to-late teens and Caucasian in appearance, they were also seen 20 minutes before the daring raid walking west on Bruce King Drive.

One was about 185cm tall with a slim build, shoulder-length blond hair, wearing a white singlet, a green hooded jacket and black shorts.

He had a semi-circular tattoo in old English-style writing running around his upper chest under his neckline.

Another is described as 165cm to 170cm tall with a slim build, short dark hair with a distinctive bend on the bridge of his nose. He was wearing a white T-shirt and dark three-quarter-length pants.

Another was 165cm to 170cm tall with a thin build and short, fluffy hair. The other was about 160cm tall with a medium to solid build, wearing a black cap, a black hooded jumper and black three-quarter-length pants.

Police are not sure if both armed robberies are linked.
