AN employee of a Bankstown service station was robbed at knifepoint this morning.
Just before 4am, three men walked into the Chapel Road South service station and threatened the employee with a knife and stole cash, before fleeing. No one was injured. Bankstown police established a crime scene that was examined by specialist forensic officers. Anyone with information that may assist police is urged to come forward.
