Restau­rant staff at­tacked

Canning Gazette - - CRIME WATCH -

CLOVERDALE PO­LICE are look­ing for a man who robbed a restau­rant and at­tacked a woman as staff were pre­par­ing to close.

The man en­tered the Aber­nethy Road restau­rant through a rear un­locked door about 8.40pm on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 20.

Staff, who were in the fi­nal stages of clean­ing before clos­ing, did not no­tice the man fill a pa­per bag full of clean­ing items and pick up a set of car keys.

The man walked into the carpark and un­locked a car be­long­ing to one of the staff mem­bers. A fe­male staff mem­ber saw their car be­ing opened and ran out.

She man­aged to open the driver’s door but the man punched her sev­eral times in the head before the key broke off at the ig­ni­tion and the man ran away.

Po­lice be­lieve the same man is re­spon­si­ble for sev­eral of­fences, in­clud­ing bur­glar­ies and dam­age in the same area within a twohour pe­riod.

They re­leased CCTV im­ages of a man they be­lieve may be able to as­sist them with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

He is de­scribed as light skinned, 20-25 years old, with a thin/medium build, dark fa­cial hair and short dark hair. He was wear­ing a black T-shirt with white writ­ing on the right front side, black shorts and was bare­foot. He has ex­ten­sive tat­toos on both arms and his right leg.
