Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery of a 16-year-old boy, at knifepoint, at the Belconnen Skate Park at Emu Bank yesterday afternoon (Monday, March 5).
About 4.10 pm the boy was approached by a man at the front of Lake Ginninderra College as he walked to meet his mother. The man asked the time to which the boy responded and kept walking.
The man called out again and when the boy turned around was confronted with the man holding a knife. The man threatened the boy and demanded his mobile phone, to which the boy complied.
The offender is described as Caucasian in appearance with an olive complexion, between 30 to 35 years-of-age, approximately 173cm tall (5’8”), of medium build with short, dark-coloured hair that was thin through the middle. He was wearing dark blue jeans and a yellow T-shirt, and was unshaven.
