ACT Policing is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying two males who are persons of interest in an ongoing investigation into an aggravated robbery at DFO in July.
After a detailed study of available imagery leading up to the crime, these two males were captured by CCTV at the DFO on July 12, a week before the robbery in the Fyshwick shopping complex carpark on July 19.
Police believe that the behaviour of the two men shown in these pictures was suspicious.
About 11.50am on July 19, two male offenders forced a 69-year-old security officer to the ground in the carpark under DFO. The males stole a bag containing a significant amount of cash. The victim was not injured during the incident.
Both of the offenders were described only as having solid builds and were both wearing black balaclavas. One of the offenders was about 175 centimetres tall (5’9”) and the other offender was about 168 centimetres tall (5’6”).
Following the incident, the males entered a blue Holden Commodore sedan, containing two other males in balaclavas. They then drove out of the carpark.
Police would urge anyone who may know the identity of these two males or the offenders to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information may be provided anonymously.
UPDATE: We’ve had this mail in from Geraldine and suggested she contact ACT policing who we are sure will be glad to hear from her:
Subject: Armed Robbers at DFO
The boys in your photo’s are my son and son in law, my son is 14yrs old and you have plastered him on the net as a person of suspicion for aggravated robbery.
I suggest you remove these photo’s ASAP as you have now tagged my boy as a suspected criminal.
How would you feel if this was your child simply shopping with his brother in law
