The male is described as Caucasian, approximately 173cm (5’8”) tall, aged between 19-20 with a medium build and short spiky hair. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a patterned white hooded long sleeved jacket and full length dark pants.
Later that evening around 10.50pm, police attended the Caltex Service Station on the corner Were Street and Webber Crescent in response to an alarm. A male employee told police that an unknown male had walked into the service station and demanded cigarettes and money. The employee handed over a packet of cigarettes, but was unable to open the register. The offender then left the store on foot.
This male offender is described as Caucasian, approximately 168cm (5’6”) tall, aged between 18-20 with a medium build. He was wearing a white hoodie and blue jeans.
