Masked thief threatens Puke petrol station  attendant with knife, flees with cash

Tongan Police are hunting for a man who wore a hoodie covering his face while threatening an employee at a service station in Puke with a knife.

The incident took place last Friday 20 and the man escaped with about TP$500 of cash.

The owner of the service station Tevita Tuʻipulotu reportedly said the suspect confronted him with what he claimed as a knife while he was inside the service station office at about 9pm.

Tuʻipulotu said he yelled out at the suspect “robber, robber” before he took off.

The man was able to reach out to a wallet and the till and took the money.
