Armed robbery at Taro grocery store: Dylan Green chased away and handed over to police | Newcastle Herald

News, court crimes,

A young man who pulled out a hunting knife and tried to set up a grocery store in Taro ran away immediately when the clerk grabbed the bar and handed it over to the police. Taro’s Dylan Edward Green told the clerk after throwing his backpack behind the counter around 4 pm on August 3, this year, “put in a cigarette and put in cash.” When the clerk asked if Green was a joke, the 21-year-old replied, “No, I’ll chop you up.” Green appeared last week in the Newcastle District Court via an audiovisual link from prison and was found guilty of attempted armed robbery. He will then appear in the Newcastle District Court next month to get a decision date. According to a statement of facts agreed, the victim was the only person at the Anderson Drive grocery store on the afternoon of August 3 when the green entered and walked straight to the counter. He threw a backpack at the victim and told him to fill it with cash and cigarettes, holding a hunting knife in his right hand. The victim later told police that Green was pointing his knife at him, and he told Green, “No one wants to get hurt, just get out.” When Green didn’t leave, the victim picked up a milk box and said to him: “That’s fine.” According to the agreed facts, he soon realized he was winning and picked up a metal crowbar from behind the counter. Green began knocking on items from the counter, but when the victim came out behind the counter with a bar, he quickly escaped from the front door. Victims told police they were running along Anderson Drive, chasing the green and watching them cross the road before entering Eastern Avenue. The victim then returned to the store and called Triple Zero. Police arrived, established a crime scene, and began an investigation. The victim told police that he was “a little scared” when he saw Green armed with a knife. Green was captured on the store’s CCTV throughout the robbery attempt, and DNA extracted from the backpack and the other three areas of the store later identified him as a knife-armed man. But three hours later, Green confessed to the Maitland police station before police identified the suspect. He was arrested and interviewed police, admitting that he was responsible for the attempted armed robbery. Green hasn’t applied for bail since his arrest and remains behind the bar. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
