ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery in Phillip last night (Tuesday, 8 February).
Around 8pm a young male was walking though Bowes Street, Phillip towards the Woden bus interchange when he was approached by two males who threatened him and demanded money. The offenders punched the victim in the face and stole his bag and mobile phone, then fled the scene in a silver/grey Holden Commodore which was driven by a third unidentified male.
The first male offender was described as Caucasian, aged in his late 20s, approximately 178cm (5’10”) tall, with a thin build, short brown hair in the style of a crew cut with overgrown short brown facial hair. He was wearing an old oversized maroon T-shirt and dark cargo shorts.
The second male offender was described as Caucasian, aged in his late 20s, approximately 178cm (5’10”) tall, with a solid build, short brown facial hair and was wearing a black and white black camouflage hooded jumper and a New York Yankees baseball cap with a similar black and white camouflage pattern.
