BELMONT Police are seeking assistance with a fraud incident that occurred at a tavern along Kewdale Road.

About 5pm on May 22 two men entered the tavern and selected about $4000 worth of items that were fraudulently paid for in two separate transactions using card numbers saved on their mobile phone.

The men were able to manually enter credit card details when they were given the Eftpos machine to enter their PIN.

The first man is described as having an olive complexion, in his 20s with a beard.

He was last seen wearing a blue shirt and blue tracksuit pants.

The second man is described as also having an olive complexion, aged in his 20s with short dark hair.

He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and blue jumper.

RIVERVALE

ABOUT 9pm on March 24, a woman was walking on Great Eastern Highway, Rivervale listening to music through headphones when a man and woman approached her without her noticing and blocked her path.

The woman grabbed the victim by the hair and pulled her to the ground while the man tried to grab her bag off her shoulder.

The victim was able to hold on to her bag and scream, resulting in the offenders fleeing from the scene empty handed. The victim suffered grazes and bruising to her legs and arms.

A staff member approached the woman and asked for the items back. The woman handed one item back and punched the staff member to the face. She then remained in the area hurling verbal abuse at the victim before leaving. The woman is described as light-skinned, about 30 years of age, medium build with shoulder-length blonde hair.
