Latrobe Criminal Investigation Unit detectives are appealing for public assistance following an alleged armed robbery at a service station in Newborough last week.
Investigators have been told a man attended a petrol station on Narracan Drive about 5am on Saturday, 30 January.
It is alleged the man approached the counter, threatened the attendant with a firearm and demanded money.
While no one was injured during the incident, police believe the man fled with a quantity of cash and was last seen crossing railway tracks onto Hagans Track.
Detectives have released images of a man they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries and an image of a distinctive patchwork bag the man was carrying.
The man is described as Caucasian, aged between 20 and 45 years old, 167 centimetres tall, with a solid build and decaying teeth.
He is pictured wearing a blue checked, hooded jumper, grey tracksuit pants, black shoes and green beanie.
Anyone with information about the incident is urged to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
