At around 2.55pm on Tuesday 8 June 2021, a man in company with a woman took two gold bracelets from a jewellery store on Ranford Road in Canning Vale without paying and walked off. The store owner realising the two bracelets had been taken, left the store to look for the couple.
The store owner located the couple not far from his store and as he approached them he saw that the man was wearing one of the bracelets and had the other bracelet in his hand. When confronted, the man threw the one bracelet at the store owner and started punching the store owner to his head and body. The woman grabbed the store owners mobile and smashed it onto the ground. The man then picked up the store owner’s hat which had fallen to the ground and walked off with it, accompanied by the woman.
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, slim build, around 170cm tall with short dark brown hair. He was wearing a white long sleeved shirt, black trousers, red Nike sliders with a black shoulder bag.
