A man has been charged after allegedly holding up a Wyong discount store at knifepoint yesterday afternoon.
Police say the 49-year-old pretended to make a purchase at the Reject Shop, when he pulled out the weapon.
He demanded cash from a 25-year-old behind the counter, before taking off from the shopping centre.
Officers tracked down the culprit at Wyong Train Station.
“They observed a male fitting the description about to enter a train,” Ch Insp Colin Lott said.
“They managed to arrest that male without incident and they uncovered both the weapon and the proceeds of the offence.”
The 49-year-old has been refused bail to face Wyong Court in March.
