ACT Policing is appealing for witnesses following the aggravated robbery of a vehicle from the car park in front of Dominoes at the Florey Shops last night (Tuesday, 12 September).

About 9.30pm, the victim entered her vehicle when she was approached by a male and a female. The offenders made demands for the victim to exit the car, which the victim refused.
