ACT Policing is investigating an incident on Saturday night (September 3) after a 66-year-old war veteran was robbed of a sum of cash at the Cotter Dam.
On Saturday morning the 66-year-old man travelled from country NSW to Canberra with a man he believed to be his friend, with the view of purchasing a vehicle.
About 11.00pm on Saturday night the two men were driving in bushland near the Cotter Dam when the friend told the man he was lost and would need to stop to check the map for directions.
Around this time, a green Holden Commodore, possibly with Queensland registration, stopped close to where the two men had parked. It was at this stage that the victim was dragged out of the vehicle by his friend who placed a knife against his throat.
The offender took the victim’s money, mobile phone and wallet before driving away with the other vehicle. The victim, who is completely deaf and mute, spent the evening on the side of the road before making his way to the City Police Station on Sunday afternoon to report the robbery.
The passenger of the green Commodore is described as around 25-years-of-age. He has shoulder length dark coloured hair and dark features.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen the green Commodore in the area of the Cotter Dam on Saturday evening to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.
