Restaurant staff attacked
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.
