Share Canberra's trusted news:

TWO men, who are thought to be in their teenage years, approached a person on Tytherleigh Street in Wanniassa on Sunday (July 2), demanded cash and then fled with the money. 

A face-fit image has been drawn of a man who took part of an aggravated robbery in Wanniassa on Sunday (July 2).
The incident occurred at about 5.50pm, which was around the time that the offenders fled towards Highett Street.

One man, who has been drawn as a face-fit image, is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his late teens and about 180cm (6’1”) tall with brown hair. The male has a shaved head and a line shaved into his left eyebrow. He has a 2cm long bowling pin tattoo on the left side of neck and was wearing a black hoodie and beige pants.

The second man was about 172cm (5’8”) tall, about 17 to 18 years of age with brown hair and wearing a full red NIKE tracksuit.
