Woman charged over Waikiki hold-up

Regional Detectives have charged a woman after a robbery at a service station in Waikiki on Tuesday.

About 6.45am, it’s believed a 31-year-old woman entered the Gnangara Drive premises and made threats to a staff member with a syringe.

The staff member handed the woman cash and the offender fled on a pushbike.

Police have since charged the Waikiki woman with armed robbery and two counts of stealing.

She is due to appear in the Rockingham Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
