Around 11.30am on Tuesday 29 December 2020, a woman entered a retail store at a shopping centre on Council Avenue Rockingham pushing a trolley with a female child around 11 years of age. The woman was seen by staff members to be placing toys in the shopping trolley with shopping bags inside.
She was placing the toys under the bags and then went to the front counter and paid for a few items without declaring the items under the bags. She left the store and was approached by staff members who asked for the items back worth around $115. The woman became verbally aggressive towards a staff member.
She was joined by a male who was holding a baby, and he also verbally abused the staff members. At one point the female threw a drink bottle at a staff member and they left the area.
Police have released CCTV images of a woman who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The woman is described as: Light brown skinned, slim build with brown hair tied up. She was wearing a black ‘Adidas’ t-shirt and floral shorts.
