A MAN has been charged after allegedly robbing a Fairy Meadow convenience store earlier this year.

About 10.10am on Friday, May 14, 2021, a man entered the shop on Cabbage Tree Lane, Fairy Meadow, with his head and face concealed by a hooded jacket and face mask. Police will allege he approached the front counter and handed the shop attendant – a 22-year-old woman – a note demanding cash and cigarettes. He allegedly fled with a sum of cash and cigarettes before fleeing down the driveway of a unit on Cabbage Tree Lane.

Wollongong police attended and established a crime scene. Following inquiries, including the examination of forensic evidence, a 36-year-old man was arrested at Wollongong Police Station just after 5.30pm yesterday (Wednesday 7 July 2021).

The Berkeley man was charged with robbery and refused bail to appear in Wollongong Local Court today (Thursday, July 8, 2021).
