A police investigation's underway after masked men stole money from the Post Office in Bar Hill.

Three men, wearing balaclavas and carrying what's been described as an axe, metal pole and crow bar entered the Post Office and Library in Gladeside, Bar Hill at about 5.15pm last night (Monday).

They threatened a librarian and knocked her to the floor and then jumped over the counter and stole a large amount of money before driving off in a dark coloured 4 x 4 style car.

Before the robbery the men assaulted a postman outside by punching him in the head. He received minor injuries.

All three men were dressed in dark clothing and yellow gloves, two wearing black balaclavas, the third wearing a grey balaclava.

Detective Inspector Dave Murphy, investigating said: "This was a terrifying incident for the librarian who was threatened and then pushed over by these masked men. Luckily she was not hurt, but left shaken.

"I would appeal for anyone who was in the area at the time to contact police.”
