Exeter Hotel In Semaphore Held-Up By Man In Skull Mask

The Exeter Hotel in Semaphore was held-up on Sunday night by a man wearing a skull mask and police are still looking for him.

Just before midnight on Sunday 3 March, a man armed with a knife and baseball bat threatened staff in the gaming room of the Exeter Hotel on Semaphore Road and stole cash.  He also stole cash and cards from a staff member's purse before leaving through a rear door.

One of the staff members was hit with the bat during the robbery and was treated at the scene by paramedics.

The suspect is described as tall, about 190 cm tall, slim build, wearing full length white overalls, dark shoes and covered his face with a skull mask.

Police searched the area with the assistance of Police Dog Iggy, who picked up a track from the hotel, but lost the scent in Young Street.

CIB detectives and crime scene investigators attended and examined the scene overnight.

Anyone with information that may help the investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at
