ACT Policing has released a face-fit image of a man responsible for the assault and robbery of a 45-year-old man in Glebe Park in September.
Around 7pm on Friday 23 September, the 45-year-old man was walking through Glebe Park in Canberra City when he was approached by four young men who demanded his wallet. The man refused and attempted to walk around the group. The group attacked the man, and stole his key wallet and a back pack containing a SLR camera with a zoom lens.
A witness approached the man to offer help and was also threatened by the group before they left the park.
The man depicted in the face-fit is described as Caucasian in appearance, between 16 to 23 years of age, approximately 185cm (6’1”) tall with a slim build and was wearing a light coloured jumper.
He was in the company of three men described as aged in their teens.
Anyone who recognises the man pictured in the face-fit, or anyone with information about the assault and robbery is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
