Axe Wielding Gang Terrorises Melbourne Shop Owner

A gang wielding a tomahawk and a sledgehammer have robbed a bottle shop in Melbourne's west. The gang terrorised the staff while robbing the shop.

CCTV footage shows the gang working quickly to steal cigarettes and cash, and pulling the shop staff member into the center of the store.

The robbery occurred at around 6:30pm last Friday night, which is during the shop's busiest trading period. The shop owner says it's extremely lucky nobody was seriously injured.

Victoria Police have described the attack as brazen, and that the gang had no regard for their victim's safety.
