Around 1.35pm on Tuesday 17 September 2019, a man entered a tool shop on Merchant Drive Rockingham. After browsing the store for a short time, the man selected a socket set and walked out of the store without paying for the item.

The man then challenged the store employee to a fight before leaving the area on the bicycle.

The man is described as: Light skinned, medium build and short dark hair. He was wearing a red and black top, dark shorts and sunglasses.
