Police are appealing for public help after an alleged armed robbery in Barmedman earlier this month.

Emergency services were called to a service station in Queen Street about 3:45 pm on Tuesday, 18 April, following reports of an armed robbery.

Murrumbidgee Police District officers were told two unknown people had entered the service station and allegedly threatened an employee with a machete and a metal bar before stealing cash and fleeing.

The crime scene was examined by forensic police.

As inquiries continue, police are appealing for public help to identify two people who may be able to assist with the investigation.

They are described as being about 170cm-175cm tall. One was wearing all black with a face covering, and the other was wearing black pants, a black hoodie with a white adidas logo on the hood, and a fluorescent-yellow jacket.

Anyone with information, including dashcam vision from near the area at the time, is urged to contact West Wyalong Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
