At approximately 9pm on Sunday 19 June, a man wearing a full-faced white mask, a distinctive heavy mustard coloured coat with a brown collar, dark pants and white shoes entered the bar.
A second offender waited in the carpark in a stolen Silver Mazda Atenza station wagon and the vehicle fled the scene when the first offender returned to the car.
The vehicle was stolen from Archers Road around 6.30pm on Sunday and was located just after 9pm in Chequers Ave, Glenfield.
