A man will face court this morning after he was charged by police with robbery at a service station at Kariong last night.
About 7.15pm, a man attended a service station on Mitchell Road armed with a knife, demanding cash and tobacco from the console operator, who complied.
The offender fled from the premises and police were contacted.
Officers from Brisbane Water Local Area Command attended and established a crime scene.
Investigators seized and subsequently reviewed CCTV from the service station.
About 12.30am today, police attended a home in Mitchell Drive at Kariong and arrested a 23-year-old man.
He was conveyed to Gosford Police Station where he was later charged with robbery whilst armed with an offensive weapon and breach of bail.
The man was refused bail to appear at Wyong Bail Court today.
