Perth Detectives are investigating an attempted aggravated armed robbery in Barrack Square Perth around 12.30am on Thursday 6 December 2018.

A man in his 40’s had parked his silver Toyota Echo on Barrack Square near the construction site at Barrack Square, when he was approached by the driver of a white Holden Commodore which was parked nearby.

The driver used a hammer to smash the window of the victim’s car, before making demands for the man’s money and phone. He then drove off empty handed, and was last seen driving on The Esplanade travelling at speed.  It is believed that two other people were in the car at the time.

Two light coloured hatchback vehicles were parked in the same area and up to three people were seen walking on Barrack Square at the time of the incident – all of whom may have witnessed the incident.

Police have released a CCTV image of the vehicle involved. The vehicle is described as a white sedan with a sunroof. The man is described as light skinned, 20-30 years of age and a medium build.
