At around 3.20pm on Wednesday 16 June 2021, two women entered a pharmacy store on Albany Highway in Gosnells. One of the women took a can of baby formula off a shelf and placed it on top of a pram she was pushing, then both women left the store without paying for the formula. A staff member followed the women out of the store and retrieved the formula off the top of the pram and returned to the store.
Soon after one of the woman returned to the store with a man and started to shout abuse at the staff member before suddenly walking up and hitting the staff member to the side of the face. Soon after, the man picked up a shopping basket and threw it at the staff member.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man and woman who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.

The woman is described as: tanned skin, medium build, between 25 to 35 years of age with brown hair tied into a bun. She was wearing a dark blue jumper, blue jeans with pink sliders.
