A ROB­BER at­tacked a male with pep­per spray as he walked through North Metropoli­tan Tafe late in the af­ter­noon in Joon­dalup re­cently. Po­lice said the vic­tim was walk­ing on the board­walk near Grand Boule­vard be­tween 4pm and 4.20pm on Satur­day, April 15. A po­lice spokesman said the of­fender asked the male for a cig­a­rette and $2, but he re­fused. “Af­ter re­ceiv­ing noth­ing, the male be­came in­volved in a short strug­gle with the vic­tim and pro­duced what is be­lieved to have been a can of pep­per spray,” he said. “The vic­tim was sprayed with the sub­stance be­fore the male stole his mo­bile phone and head­phones.” The of­fender was de­scribed as dark-skinned, about 170cm tall and aged be­tween 30 and 40. He had a scruffy beard and av­er­age build and was wear­ing a black T-shirt with white stripes and grey pants. Call Joon­dalup Po­lice on 9400 0888 or Crime Stop­pers with in­for­ma­tion.
