Armadale worker assaulted

Police are appealing for help to find a woman who assaulted a staff member of an Armadale supermarket.

At around 5.50pm on Sunday, February 4, a staff member of Forrest Road Fresh noticed a store product protruding from a woman’s handbag as she tried to exit the store.

When she confronted the woman and asked her to pay for the item, she was struck to the side of her face by the woman.

CCTV revealed the woman had concealed further products from the store in her carry bag.

Police have released CCTV images of a woman who they believe may be able to assist with their investigation.

She is described as brown-skinned, medium build, between 20 to 30 years of age with collar length auburn hair.

She was wearing a black t-shirt, yellow shorts with black Nike slides and carried a black carry bag.

If you have any information about the identity of this woman or details of this offence please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au. You can remain anonymous if you wish and rewards are available once charges are laid. Please quote Reference Number 11364.

Man dead outside of Armadale Hospital

A man has died after colliding with a truck outside the Armadale Hospital.

The incident occurred just after 8am on Tuesday morning.

Multiple witnesses rushed to help the man until emergency services arrived, while other bystanders helped to direct rush hour traffic around the area.

Attempts were made by members of the public, and by St John paramedics, to save the man who was in his 50s, but he was pronounced dead inside the Emergency Department of the hospital.

The southbound lanes of the Albany Highway were closed while Major Crash officers investigated.

Support worker robbed

A support worker caring for a disabled person has been threatened and robbed during a break-in at Oakford over the weekend.

Armadale Detectives are appealing for the public’s assistance for information as they investigate the incident which occurred on Saturday, February 17.

About 8.15pm, two men entered the home on Tuart Road, confronting the male carer who is aged in his 30s.

The carer placed himself between the men and his client’s bedroom door as the men attempted to enter it.

The men stole the carer’s phone so he could not call police, before they fled on foot.

The men are described as being fair skinned, medium/large builds, approximately 172cms to 183cms tall, both had short dark hair, one had facial hair and the other a ‘French’ moustache.

It is believed the men are locals.

As part of the investigation, detectives are investigating whether recent comments on a local social media group, which incorrectly identified the residence as being for former prisoners, may be linked to the incident.

Armadale Detectives would like to speak to anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident who may have seen the two men. Anyone with any information relating to this incident, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
