Woman injured in robbery at Winnellie Supermarket


A shop attendant has been injured in a robbery in Winnellie last night.

Police say two men, who entered the Winnellie Supermarket at 7.20pm were acting suspiciously.

It prompted a staff member to closely watch them and place a trolley in front of them.

Watch Commander Len Turner says the men chose a carton of beer and after being asked for identification at the counter, they allegedly “charged at the lady, knocking her over with the trolley.”

It is alleged a scuffle then took place before the men ran off.

The 54-year-old shop attendant, who suffered injuries to her back, arms and hands was taken to the Royal Darwin Hospital.

Two men aged 17 and 20 have now been arrested.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is urged to contact police.
