Man blocks bathroom during attempted robbery

Share Canberra's trusted news:

A WOMAN was cornered in the bathroom near Woolworths in Belconnen Mall last year, November 28, by another woman, who attempted to steal her handbag, while a man blocked the exit. 

The alleged offenders entered the bathroom at about 8.30pm, where the woman offender accused the victim of stealing her phone before attempting to snatch her handbag.

The man then blocked the exit, pushing the victim back into the bathroom as she tried to leave.

Another woman, who did not participate in the attempted robbery, was nearby and appears to know the suspects.

The offenders are believed to have left in a white coloured Nissan Pulsar, with number plate YKS894 (ACT registration).
