Police are calling for assistance following an attempted armed robbery at a Burnside Heights café earlier this month.

Security footage shows two men arriving at the Tenterfield Road cafe in a stolen Nissan Maxima sedan just after 6pm on March 3.

One of the occupants, dressed in black with his face covered, used a hammer to smash the glass front door but was unable to enter the building.

Investigators believe that the pair were also involved in a home invasion and an armed robbery in Kings Park the previous night during which the

Nissan Maxima and a Holden Commodore, were stolen.

Police said the stolen Commodore was used in an armed robbery at a local hotel.

Investigators have released CCTV footage of the incident which they believe may be able to assist them with their inquiries.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
