Police are investigating after a masked man used a gun to hold up a Golden Point service station overnight.

A 36-year-old worker had been clearing shelves about 2am when the man attended the store.

The attendant allowed the man inside to serve him, when he pulled a mask over his face and produced a gun.

The worker surrendered the till, which “contained a small amount of cash”, according to police.

The man took the till and shoved it into a black backpack before fleeing on a grey mountain bike. 

He has been described as Caucasian and about 170cm tall, and was wearing a black beanie, black jacket and black pants. 

The investigation is ongoing. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
