A man will face court today charged with armed robbery upon the same convenience store twice in three days.

About 7.40pm yesterday, a man allegedly entered a convenience store on Manning Street, Kingswood, where he threatened a 21-year-old male employee with a butcher’s knife. The man fled the location with a sum of cash.

Police were contacted and officers from Nepean Police Area Command established a crime scene and commenced an investigation.

Officers were informed that the man had also allegedly entered the store shortly before 4pm on Tuesday, June 27 and had done the same thing, but the incident had not been reported to police.

It will be alleged that officers located the butcher’s knife and proceeds from the store in the man’s possession.

He was taken to Penrith Police Station and charged with two counts of robbery armed with offensive weapon.

The Kingswood man was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court today.
