A MAN who struck a se­cu­rity guard with a brick af­ter hurl­ing it at him in the carpark of a Girrawheen shop­ping cen­tre last month is still at large. Po­lice said the vic­tim had asked the of­fender to move his bike be­cause it was block­ing the en­trance to the shop­ping cen­tre about 8.05am on May 13 on Maranga­roo Drive. “The owner then picked up a brick and threw it at the guard, caus­ing im­me­di­ate pain, and then threat­ened the guard with a long piece of wood,” a po­lice state­ment said. In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve the man pic­tured can help with in­quiries. He was thought to be 165cm tall and aged about 18. Con­tact Crime Stop­pers with in­for­ma­tion and quote ref­er­ence num­ber 8912.
