At about 12.05 pm on Friday 2 October 2015 the pictured male entered JB HiFi West Lakes and stole a Fitbit watch, which he placed down the front of his pants.
When he was confronted as he went to leave the store he threatened staff with a Stanley knife, saying; “I don’t want to do this. I just want to feed myself, I don’t want trouble.”

He is described as Caucasian, about 6’2″ tall, slim build, short ginger coloured hair shaved in a number 2 cut, and a sunken in face.
