Around 1.30pm on Saturday 20 June 2020, a woman entered a shopping centre on Settlers Avenue Baldivis. She walked to the counter of a café where there was a charity box containing money. The woman picked up the box and ran from the store.
An employee was alerted to this by customers and he chased after her into the car park. He caught up with her in an attempt to get the charity box and its contents back. The woman began to punch and kick him repeatedly. During the commotion, the box fell to the ground and money spilt out. The man stood back to avoid being assaulted further. The woman picked up the money and ran away, leaving the charity box.
Police have released a CCTV image of a woman who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The woman is described as: Light skinned, brown hair tied back, medium build and around 165cm tall. She was wearing a black jumper with ‘champion’ logo, black ‘adidas’ pants and red sneakers.
