ST JAMES KENS­ING­TON De­tec­tives are still seek­ing in­for­ma­tion about a rob­bery in St James on the af­ter­noon of Oc­to­ber 5. At about 3.15pm, the 88-yearold vic­tim was walk­ing south along a foot­path on Al­bany High­way near Wyn­d­ham Street when she was ap­proached from be­hind by a man. He then walked in front of her and at­tempted to steal a shop­ping bag that was over her shoul­der. The woman held on to the bag, caus­ing her to fall onto the foot­path. The man con­tin­ued to pull at the bag, drag­ging the woman along the path be­fore even­tu­ally ob­tain­ing the bag and run­ning away. The woman’s shoul­der was dis­lo­cated dur­ing the in­ci­dent and she also re­ceived a lac­er­a­tion to her leg. She was as­sisted by mem­bers of the pub­lic who called St John’s Am­bu­lance. The man is de­scribed as be­ing in his early 20’s, fair-skinned, stocky, ath­letic build, wearing black pants and a black t-shirt. Po­lice would like to speak to any­one that wit­nessed the in­ci­dent, saw a man match­ing the that de­scrip­tion, or has dash­cam vi­sion of the area dur­ing this time.

BURSWOOD PERTH De­tec­tives are seek­ing as­sis­tance with a wound­ing in­ci­dent that oc­curred on Great East­ern High­way on July 14. At about 6.30am the vic­tim stepped on to a bus along Great East­ern High­way when they were ap­proached by an un­known woman and stabbed sev­eral times with a sharp ob­ject caus­ing mi­nor in­juries. The woman has then ex­ited the bus at Kooy­ong Road, River­vale. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a woman who they be­lieve may be able to as­sist them with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion. The woman is de­scribed as dark-skinned, slim build, 168cm tall, be­tween 30 to 40 years of age with wavy shoul­der-length brown hair.
