A 21-YEAR-OLD Rockingham man used a metal pole, bolt cutters and a knife during three alleged burglary attempts this month. Police said the man swung the pole while demanding cash at an Ennis Avenue business in Cooloongup about 8.15pm on March 3. Three days later the man is believed to have entered a business on Forrest Road in Hamilton Hill. “He produced a metal pole from under his jacket and began waving it around in a threatening manner demanding cash,” a police spokesman said. “A staff member grabbed a metal pole and ran towards the man, causing him to run out of the store. Nothing was stolen.” A few hours later the man entered a restaurant on Jindalee Boulevard in Jindalee. Police said he was holding bolt cutters and a knife, which he swung towards a staff member. He narrowly missed the restaurant employee but did make away with some cash. Regional Investigations Unit officers investigated and charged a Rockingham man with two counts of armed robbery and one count of attempted robbery.
