CRIME Manager, detective sergeant Matthew Reynolds is urging victims to comply with demands from offenders, following an aggravated robbery in Manuka shops last month.
“If you are unfortunate enough to be a victim of an aggravated robbery, I urge you to think about your personal safety and comply with the demands of the offender, it is not worth being injured,” he says.
A man on Bougainville Street, in Griffith on May 27 at about 10.45pm was walking to his vehicle carrying a sum of cash from a nearby business, when he was approached by two males in a turquoise 2016 Suzuki Vitara.
The vehicle stopped and one male opened the passenger-side door, threatened the victim and made demands for the cash.
The victim complied with the demands and the males fled the area in the vehicle towards Flinders Way.
The male who threatened the victim is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his 20’s with a slim build.
“We are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or any suspicious behaviour in the area at the time, or who may have dash cam or CCTV footage of the vehicle to contact police,” Sergeant Reynolds says.
