Police appeal after robbery in shopping centre – Albury


Police are appealing for information after a woman was robbed at a shopping centre in Albury earlier this week.

About 4pm (Friday 3 June 2016), a man approached a 21-year-old woman and her son in a food court at a shopping centre on Olive Street, Albury.

The man took her mobile phone from her hands after a struggle.

The woman suffered minor injuries as a result; however she did not require treatment.

Police have been told that the man ran away and was chased by three witnesses. The witnesses stopped the man in David Street and retrieved the woman’s phone.

Officers from Albury Local Area Command are investigating the incident.

As part of their ongoing inquiries, police have now released CCTV images of a man they believe may be able to assist them.

The depicted man is described as being Caucasian, aged about 20.

He was last seen wearing a red baseball-style jacket with ‘Red Sox’ across the front, black trackpants with ‘Adidas’ written down the left leg in large lettering, black and white runners (possibly ‘Nike’), a black hood under a jacket and a black cap.
