School security guard robbed at knifepoint
A SCHOOL security guard (31) was robbed at knifepoint by a masked man at West Leederville Primary School about 3.30am on April 14.
“He said he was approached by a man wearing a blue mask covering all his face who was carrying a large knife,” Senior Sergeant Kate Vivian said.
The guard, from Morley, was protecting a building site on school grounds and was outside the school near his car when a white Mitsubishi Lancer drove past, turned around and returned.
Sgt Vivian said the masked robber got out of the Lancer and demanded money, but the guard showed his wallet was empty.
The robber demanded the guard’s mobile telephone, which was handed over after the guard “obeyed out of fear”.
The robber left in the Lancer before police arrived.
