Police are asking people and retailers in the CBD to keep an eye out for a man asking for large amounts of money in the CBD.
The man entered Smiths Sports Shoes this morning and asked for around $400, claiming his bank accounts had been closed down.
He is described as wearing a black coat, has a mullet, and looks around 40-50 years old. He was also carrying a purple bag.
A police spokesperson confirms they received a call about the man earlier today.
“We've advised the store owner to call police again if the man returns.”
Retailers are also advised contact the police if they have any concerns of a similar nature.
