POLICE are investigating whether three incidents that occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning are linked.

Police said around 3.50am, offenders used a red Volkswagen Golf GTI to ram raid a coffee shop on Paget Street in Hilton, causing significant damage.

About 10 minutes later the same car was used to smash through the entrance of a Hamilton Hill shopping centre on Rockingham Road.

The impact dislodged an ATM, but no money was able to be accessed.

The car was left at the scene and the offenders ran off.

Police are investigating whether these incidents are connected to the robbery of a woman who was walking down Holmes Place at 4.15am.

The 30-year-old woman was pushed to the ground from behind and while on the floor, one of the offenders took her handbag and searched it before throwing it away.

The woman received cuts and bruises but did not need medical treatment.

Both men are described as being dark skinned, in their early 20s and with slim builds.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents can call Crime Stoppers.
