Police have said a “person of interest” has been identified during an investigation into an armed robbery at Shoal Bay last month. 

Detectives were this week reviewing evidence following the Shoal Bay Country Club robbery on April 30 which left a male employee, 24, with a stab wound to his face. 

Shortly before 1.30pm police were called to Shoal Bay Road at Shoal Bay following reports of an armed robbery. 

Police were told that a man wearing a motorcycle helmet entered the premises and demanded money. He left the hotel with cash, but was approached by a 24-year-old male employee. 

The man produced a knife and the staff member was stabbed. The employee was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital for treatment to lacerations to his face. 

The offender fled from the area on foot and was last seen running in a southerly direction along Tomaree Road. He is described as wearing a silver motorcycle helmet and gloves.

An arrest had not been made on Tuesday.
