POLICE say elderly people near doctors and hospitals are being targeted by a fraudster in Subiaco.
A police spokeswoman said the 53-year-old man approaches seniors, telling them he has lost his wallet or it has been stolen, before asking for money so he can get home, and the good samaritans will be paid later.
“Police believe that Stephen Mathew Evans may be able to assist with their inquiries into these matters,’ the spokeswoman said.
Mr Evans is described as about 180cm, solid build, fair skinned with a ruddy complexion, short dark hair and brown eyes.
