Woman held at knifepoint

Fremantle Detectives are seeking information regarding a burglary and armed robbery incident in Munster this morning, in which a woman aged in her 60s was threatened with a knife.

Police say that a group of approximately five people gained entry to a residence in Munster at around 7.30am.

At the time a woman aged in her 60s was home alone and was confronted by the group. One member of the group held the victim at knife-point while other members of the group stole several items from the residence including jewellery, a mobile phone and other items.

A short time a later a stolen silver Mitsubishi Pajero was located burnt out in Browning Avenue, Lake Coogee, which is approximately 1km from the burglary location.

It is believed the group fled the abandoned vehicle through bushland towards Stock Road and may be connected to the dumped stolen vehicle.

Detectives would like to speak to anyone in the Munster and Lake Coogee areas who may have CCTV or dash camera vision of the silver Mitsubishi Pajero or a group of five people acting suspiciously in the area.
