Police fear two armed men who robbed a TOTE Tasmania outlet in Hobart last night could strike again.
They are searching for two men who they say threatened a TOTE staff member and a customer with large knives, one the size of a machete, at the Derwent Park outlet.
Police say the offenders then fled with cash from TOTE as well as money from both victims’ wallets.
Inspector Ian Whish-Wilson from Glenorchy CIB says a team of detectives is reviewing closed circuit television footage of the incident and would also like to speak to witnesses.
“They were wearing black balaclavas, they were also wearing blue overalls and sneaker-type shoes,” he said.
“Obviously it’s a concern that people are out there committing this type of crime and we [ask] that the public give us any information that’s available.”
