Servo attendant stands his ground

THREE knife-wielding men fled from a Coffs Harbour service station on Monday afternoon after the attendant they threatened fought back.

At 3.40pm on Monday, three males entered the BP Service Station on Ocean Parade in Park Beach wielding knives and a bat.

They approached two service attendants - a 64-year-old male and 50-year old female - demanding cash from behind the counter.

The 64-year-old man fearlessly stared down the young men, fighting back with a baton stored behind the counter.

The three assailants then fled the scene.

The male attendant received minor grazing injuries during the incident and emergency services later responded to the scene.

Coffs-Clarence crime manager Detective Inspector Darren Jameson said the incident was not indicative of an increase in burglaries in the region.

Police are continuing to search for the assailants, described as Caucasian and in their early 20s.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
