POLICE are seeking help from the public to locate a man in relation to an armed robbery in Willagee and an attempted armed robbery at a post office in Inglewood on Monday, January 16.
Regional Investigation Unit detectives are conducting investigations, to locate a man described as being fair skinned, about 183cm tall with a solid build and short ginger hair.
In both incidents, he was wearing a black t-shirt, shorts, white shoes, a black baseball cap and black sunglasses.
The man entered a liquor store on the corner of Leach Highway and Stock Road about 8.10pm, asking for a bottle of spirits from the staff members before walking in and out of the store several times.
He then asked if he could withdraw a quantity of cash which the staff member confirmed he could.
After a short time of walking in and out of the store, the man again approached the counter, demanding cash and telling staff he had a needle.
He was given a quantity of cash before leaving the store in a southerly direction.
Earlier that day, about 12.30pm, it is believed the same man entered a post office on Beaufort Street in Ingelwood and asked to withdraw a sum of cash but did not complete the transaction and loitered around the store before demanding money, threatening he had a syringe.
Staff activated an alarm and the man left empty-handed, last seen running along Ninth Avenue.
