Police were called to the professional office suites in Grattan Court, Erindale, last Friday around 12.40pm after it was reported that a man had entered the office and demanded both drugs and money.

When he was told that neither was held on the premises, he savagely assaulted the 52-year-old office receptionist.

He then ransacked the offices and, finding no cash, stole two cheques and then fled on foot.

The offender is described as of middle-eastern appearance, aged in his mid-20s. He is clean-shaven, about 5’8” (173cm) in height, and with a solid build.

He was wearing a red jumper, and a black baseball cap which had a red-coloured underside. He also had sunglasses on the cap.

Police are urging anyone with information which can assist in identifying the man to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or viawww.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
