Police investigate St Kilda aggravated burglary

Port Phillip Crime Investigation Unit detectives are hoping to identity a man following an aggravated burglary in St Kilda last month.

It is believed the suspect and a fellow offender broke into a rear unit on Blessington Street while a woman was inside on Monday 22 June about 3.10pm.

Investigators were told the suspect stole a female victim’s handbag containing bank cards before one of the men fled in a white Holden ute with false registration plates SZB030.

The second man fled in another vehicle.

One of the victim’s cards was used half-an-hour later at a convenience store on St Kilda Road to make a purchase.

Police have released images of a man they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.

He is perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, aged in his 20s and has a slim build.

The second man, a 35-year-old from St Kilda East, was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary and assault-related offences.

The victim was not physically injured during the incident.

Anyone who recognises this man or has information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
