Around 9.30pm on Sunday 25 October 2018, a man was approached by three young men in Sudbury Place in Mirrabooka. The young men demanded money from the victim with one of the men arming themselves with a tree branch. The tree branch was used to hit the victim to the head several times which caused him to fall to the ground. He was then punched by another male in the head.
A wallet and mobile phone were removed from the victim’s pockets with the phone being returned to him shortly after. The group then left the area.
As a result of the assault, the victim received a large laceration to his fore head requiring several stitches.
Police have released CCTV images of three males who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The first male is described as around 18 years of age, light brown skinned, thin build and short brown hair. He was wearing a black and white long sleeve shirt, black tracksuit pants and runners.
The second male is described as around 16 years of age, light brown skinned, around 165cm tall, medium build and short brown hair. He was wearing a black hooded jumper, a black cap worn backwards, black jeans and runners.
The third male is described as around 18 years of age, light skinned, around 160cm tall, solid build, dark curly hair (long at the back) and had a dark coloured moustache. He was bear chested and was wearing white shorts and carrying a top. He was carrying a bag over his shoulder.
