Police have asked for help to identify a man they want to question over an aggravated burglary in Hastings in September.
A man forced his way into an Elisa Place residence about 1.30pm on September 2 and assaulted the 41-year-old victim with a metal pole. He then forced the injured man into his own 2007 Mercedes Benz sedan and drove him to a bank to withdraw cash before realising the man’s injuries were too severe. He then drove the victim back home and stole his car. The victim was taken to hospital and treated for serious injuries.
Mornington Peninsula Crime Investigation Unit detectives have released a CCTV image of a vehicle and a computer-generated image of a man they wish to speak to over the incident. He is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged 20-30, with a medium build, brown hair and beard, and blue eyes. They believe he drove to the victim’s home in a red Mazda sedan.
Anyone who recognises the man or the vehicle is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au and quote 92143.
