Police hunting two men over armed robbery in Crawley

POLICE are looking for a man who held up three youths at gunpoint and demanded their wallets and phones, as well as another man they believe is an accomplice.

Just after 11pm on Sunday May 13, three friends were walking along the bicycle path on Mounts Bay Road, near the intersection of Hackett Drive in Crawley.

A new model white Toyota Prado entered a nearby carpark and stopped near the men.

The driver of the Prado got out and followed them on the bicycle path before approaching them and producing a handgun.

He demanded their wallets and phones, which the men – aged 18,19 and 20 – handed over.

CCTV in the area showed a second man nearby and after the confrontation between the victims and the driver, he gets into the vehicle and both men leave the area.

The driver is described by the victims as a dark skinned male in his 20s, with a thick moustache and wearing all black.

There is no description available of the second man.

A short time later the victims’ stolen bank card was used to purchase items at a service station south of Perth.

CCTV images shows a fair skinned man using the card.

He is described as in his 20’s, medium build wearing a brown baseball cap and a dark shirt.
