A man and two women entered a retail store on Albany Highway Victoria Park around 4.30pm on Wednesday 21 October 2020.
The male asked to change a $20 note for two $10 notes. The staff member behind the counter took the note, as one of the females picked up a can of soft drink. The staff member asked if they wished to purchase the can of drink from the $20 note. This upset the male who grabbed the staff members hand holding the $20 note and thrust it into the victims face causing bruising as well as scratching his arm.
The man and two women left the store grabbing the $20 note and leaving the can of soft drink behind.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The man is described as: Light skinned, around 20 years of age, solid build wearing a red bandana and black singlet. He has tattoos of both arms.
