At around 12.20pm on Tuesday 6 April 2021, the juvenile victim was walking inside a shopping centre in Cannington when two males approached him. One of the males made a comment to the victim on how nice the silver necklace looked that he was wearing. The same male grabbed hold of the silver necklace demanding the victim let him look at it. The victim undid the necklace clasp and the male immediately placed the silver chain inside the pocket of his jacket and walked off with the other male.
Police have released a CCTV image of a male who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The male is described as: tanned skin, slim build with short dark brown hair and a thin moustache. He was wearing a grey ‘Nike’ hooded jacket, blue denim shorts just below the knees with black trainers.
