Bentley: Police searching for two men linked to shopping centre robbery

CANNING Detectives are investigating after a woman on a mobility scooter was robbed at a Bentley shopping centre.

At 10.25pm on October 16, a 26-year-old woman withdrew money from an ATM inside a shopping centre on Albany Highway.

After she withdrew the money, a man approached her and stole the money from her hand.

The woman tried to hold onto the money but was unable to stop the man, who forcibly took it from her.

She was left with pain in her hand.

She also had a medical condition, which impacted her mobility and caused her to use a mobility scooter.

At the time, she was with a female friend who had a medical condition.

The man left the scene with another man who police believed appeared to be acting as a look-out.

They were last seen on Queen Street.

The offender is being tanned-skinned, between 30 and 40 years old, about 180 to 185cm tall, large build and wearing black clothing.

His friend is described as being in his 20s.

Detective Constable Matthew Quinn urged the public who recognised the men to come forward.

“To see two men target a vulnerable member of the community in such a way is disappointing,” he said

“It is a low act and I urge members of the community to help us identify who they are so we can locate and charge them.

“Someone will recognise who they are, and I doubt even their family and friends would be impressed with their actions.”Contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report the information online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
