ACT Policing has released CCTV images of the man believed responsible for striking a security guard with a bottle while robbing a liquor store in Calwell on Sunday (October 7).

The man entered the BWS Liquor in Calwell around 9pm, took two bottles of liquor from the shelves and left the store.

When the security guard approached the man and asked him to return to pay for the items, the offender attacked the guard, striking him on the head with a full bottle of liquor.

The manager of a nearby store came to the guard’s aid and wrestled with the offender, who managed to escape and flee on foot.

Police attended a short time later and searched the area but were unable to locate the offender.

The man is described as Caucasian, about 180cm (5’11”) tall, with medium to solid build, with brown hair. He was wearing a dark jacket, dark-coloured Canterbury track pants with a thick white stripe down the side, and dark-coloured shoes.

The security guard received a cut to his forehead and was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital for treatment.

Police are urging anyone who may have seen this offender fleeing the Calwell shops in the direction of the loading bay after the incident (around 9pm), or may have any other information which could assist the investigation, to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or go to the website at

Man, I try to keep myself from sterotyping as much as I can, but this guy just looks like the epitome of your standard low-life addict thug.

The type of guy that, just by looking at him, you can tell he’s up to no good, no matter when or where you see him.

The type of guy that isn’t likely to have much of a chance (or probably intention) to better his lot in life through legitimate channels.

I think he certainly has the chance to better himself – there are a myriad of programs available for people who want help. It’s more likely that he chooses not to.

Or he’s given up asking for help only to be told the collective “we” cannot help you, or don’t want to. I think they refer to that as the too hard basket.
