Mandurah police have charged a woman with stealing and assault following an alleged incident at Silver Sands IGA last week as officers investigate another retail assault. It comes after CCTV footage from Silver Sands IGA on October 24 appeared to show a woman allegedly becoming violent after a worker asked to search her bag. The woman allegedly responded by throwing a series of aggressive punches at the worker’s head and body as the two fought over the bag. A 32-year-old woman is due in Mandurah Magistrates Court on November 17. Mandurah detectives also want to hear from people who witnessed a confrontation at Red Dot Home in Greenfields last Friday afternoon, where a female staff member was thrown to the ground after trying to stop an alleged thief. Two more people attempted to intervene before the man fled on a bicycle. Detectives believe a woman, wearing black pants and a green shirt, may have recorded the incident and have asked her to contact either Mandurah Police on 9581 0222 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at crimestopperswa.com.au. The Red Dot incident comes one month after a trio of young females were charged with aggravated robbery, stealing and other offences after they allegedly assaulted workers while trying to steal items from the same Red Dot store. Mandurah officer-in-charge acting Sen. Sgt Geoff Hawley said violence on retail employees “will not be tolerated”. “Mandurah Police would like to remind the community that any acts of violence, especially on innocent retail employees will not be tolerated, incidents will be investigated, the perpetrators will be apprehended and prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” he said.
