Around 7.30am on Thursday 3 October 2019, two men were seated in their vehicle on Phoenix Road Hamilton Hill. A man and woman approached them and engaged them in a conversation and it was agreed the two men would drive the man and woman to a nearby address.
During the short journey, the man who got the lift, produced what was believed to be a handgun and threatened two men. The driver slowed the vehicle down and was able to jump from the moving vehicle and run away. The passenger was then forced to drive the man and woman to a park in Myaree. A mobile phone was stolen from the victim and both the man and woman left the scene, leaving the victim with the vehicle.
Police have released CCTV images of a man and woman who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.

The woman is described as: Light skinned, around 30 years of age, thin build and braided dark long hair, partly tied up. She was wearing dark clothes and carrying a dark shoulder bag.
