A man has been injured during an aggravated armed robbery in Stockton overnight.
About 11.30pm (Wednesday 26 June 2019), two men entered a licenced premises on Fullerton Street, Stockton, armed with what’s believed to be a rifle and a tomahawk.
The two men threatened patrons and staff, during which a 40-year-old man received a small laceration to the face.
One of the men demanded cash from a staff member before the pair fled the scene in a vehicle.
A car was later found well alight at Pitt Street Reserve, Stockton.
Officers from Newcastle City Police District arrived and established two crime scenes.
The 40-year-old man was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics; no one else was injured.
Police are now appealing for anyone with information or anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area at that time to come forward.
