On Friday 29th July at about 5:50pm an elderly man was shopping in Sylvia Park when he became aware that a guy was following him. The elderly man started to feel uneasy and approached the male to ask why he was following him.

On learning that the male was just shopping, the victim has felt comfortable enough to continue into the complex including visiting the restroom. The suspect has followed him into the bathroom where he has punched him to the ground and continued to punch and kick him while he was on the ground. After about two and a half minutes the suspect leaves the bathroom with the victim’s watch and wallet.

The victim sustained injuries requiring treatment at Auckland Hospital.

The suspect is next seen on CCTV on the Sylvia Park train platform where he boards a train getting off at Panmure.

  • Male
  • 173-180cm / 5’8” – 5’10”
  • Aged in his 20s
  • Slim build
  • Wearing a dark coloured Huffer hoodie and maroon pants.
