Two sought af­ter theft

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

AN el­derly woman was robbed af­ter con­fronting two men act­ing sus­pi­ciously near a re­tire­ment vil­lage at Mund­ing­burra.

The men ap­proached the front of the 79- year- old woman’s unit about 8am yesterday.

A po­lice spokes­woman said the woman told the men to leave but she lost sight of one of them and when she re­turned to her unit she no­ticed her car keys and purse had been stolen.

Another el­derly res­i­dent pur­sued the men but lost sight of them.

They were de­scribed as Abo­rig­i­nal or Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der in ap­pear­ance, with one stocky and the other slim.
