A COUPLE was in a laneway at Cooleman Court yesterday (July 7) when a teenager allegedly threatened them with a metal weapon and demanded they hand over a mobile phone. It was about 6.15pm.
The couple handed over the phone and the man, who was wearing a dark coloured hoodie and dark pants, ran away towards the carpark on the southern side of the shopping centre.
He is described as Caucasian and about 175cm tall.
Police believe a number of witnesses may have seen the incident or the teen running away and are urging them to come forward.
