Detectives hunting a man believed to be responsible for three armed hold-ups in Perth’s northern suburbs are asking for a person who filmed one of the robberies to make contact.
All three of the armed hold-ups were caught on security cameras but detectives have so far been unable to identify the man responsible.
Police say he used a knife to rob the Glengarry IGA in Duncraig on January 21.
While the man was standing behind the counter waiting for a staff member to fill up his bag with cash a woman approached the counter and threw a bottle of soft drink at him, shouting at him as he ran out the shop.
It seems not even that was enough to put him off, police say he went back to the same supermarket a week later and robbed it for a second time.
On February 8 the bandit struck again, this time at the Woodlands’ Farmer Jacks where he threatened a 16-year-old female staff member with a knife, before getting away with cash.
It was during that hold-up police say a witness pulled out their mobile phone and started recording.
Officers are trying now to track that person down and get hold of their footage.
Police say in all three robberies the man acted calmly but the same can’t be said for his victims who were left in a state of shock.
