POLICE have reissued a call for help in finding a hi-vis thug who bashed a man before stealing his backpack at a Bayswater car park in September.
The incident occurred just after lunchtime on September 15 when the victim was getting into his car on Railway Parade and was approached by a man not known to him.
The offender pulled him from the car, assaulted him and stole a blue backpack before running away.
Despite some minor injuries, the victim chased his attacker and was able to retrieve his backpack.
Police are now searching for a man described as medium build and between 20 and 30 years old. He was last seen wearing dark pant, gloves and a hi-vis jacket. Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000
