At around 2.30pm on Sunday 23 May 2021, a man entered a clothing store on Station Street in Subiaco and selected a number of clothing items which he placed into a shopping bag he was carrying. As the man exited the store an employee from the store approached the man asking him to return the items of clothing in his shopping bag. The man refused and after the employee took a photograph of the man he became enraged and grabbed the employee by the throat and pushed her away.
The man walked off and after a short distance emptied his carry bag with all the clothing items onto the ground and continued walking away.
Police have released an image of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The man is described as: white skinned, medium build, between 35 to 40 years of age, short black/grey hair balding at the front with an unshaven appearance. He was wearing black tracksuit pants with a black hooded tracksuit top and was carrying a green cloth shopping bag with a sleeping bag.
