Police appeal for witnesses following robbery in Glen Waverley

Monash Crime Investigation Unit detectives are appealing for public assistance after a man stole at least $10,000 worth of mobile phones in Glen Waverley.

Investigators have been told an unknown man walked into a phone store on Springvale Road about 5pm on Sunday, 16 June.

Once inside, he used a pair of scissors to rip the display phones from security wires.

The offender then threatened a female store attendant with the scissors, before fleeing the scene on an electric scooter with the rest of the merchandise.

No one was injured.

The well-connected thief who was wearing a long black braided wig is described as being Caucasian in appearance, in his late twenties, about 180cm tall.

He was last seen wearing a black beanie, light coloured pants and a scarf covering his face.

It is believed the same offender also stole mobile phones from the store on Saturday, 20 April.

Investigators have released CCTV and images of a man they believe may be able to assist with their investigation.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
