The hold-up occurred at Tavern Harewood around 10.40pm on Friday night before the man fled with stolen cash into Bishopdale Park behind the pub, police say.

Briefly chased by a security guard and a patron, the man dropped items related to the robbery, including some cash, but managed to make his getaway.

Police have called for anyone with information to phone them, while victim support has been offered to those inside the tavern at the time of the robbery.
