AN apolo­getic knife-wield­ing thief stole a cam­era and mo­bile tele­phones from a cou­ple sit­ting on a beach­side bench near the War­ton Street-Marine Pa­rade in­ter­sec­tion about 10pm on May 3. Se­nior Sergeant Neil Morton-Smith said a man walked past the cou­ple and re­turned about 15 min­utes later, threat­en­ing the cou­ple with the knife. He then took the cam­era and phones. “He said ‘Sorry mate, I just need the cash’,” Snr Sgt Morton-Smith said. The man was de­scribed as 1.7m tall, slim and wear­ing a dark, base­ball-style cap, a long-sleeved shirt and lighter-coloured trousers.
