At around 9.00pm on Sunday 30 August 2020 a woman entered a supermarket on Coolibah Drive Greenwood. The woman filled her bag with various items and attempted to leave the store without paying. A staff member asked to look in the woman’s bag but she ran from the store. The staff member followed the woman and managed to retrieve the stolen items.
Moments later the woman returned in the company of a man. The woman was verbally abusive and threw a large water container at the staff member. The man ripped the checkout monitor off the counter, breaking it. The staff member attempted to close the store, to keep the man and woman out. The staff member finally managed to lock the door and the man and woman began to kick and punch the glass. They then picked up a sign from outside the store and hit the door repeatedly until it shattered.
As a result of the incident, the staff member received a broken finger and the store was left with a $900 damage bill.
Police have released CCTV images of a man and a woman who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The woman is described as: tanned skin, medium build, approximately 170cm tall with dark hair tied in a bun.
The man is described as: tanned skin, slim build, approximately 165cm tall with short dark hair.
