Two Pokemon GO trainers have been robbed late at night in a skate park in Sydney’s south west, with police warning users to be careful.
The Macarthur Chronicle in Camden, NSW, has reported that two Pokemon GO players drove to the skate park in Tahmoor around 7:00 PM on Wednesday night. Upon entering the carpark, they were blocked off by a white Toyota Hilux.
Two men got out of the vehicle and threatened the pair with a rifle, although they later fled empty handed. The couple then travelled to the town centre (presumably the nearby one in Tahmoor, although it’s not specified in the report) and notified police.
An official release from NSW Police adds that neither the armed men or the white Hilux could be found:
Investigations are continuing and police are hoping to speak with two men who might be able to assist with inquiries.
One man is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 190cm tall with a medium build. He was wearing a dark blue jacket and dark pants.
The other man is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 180cm tall, with a solid build, and fair complexion. He was wearing a dark blue jacket with a high-visibility shirt underneath, dark pants, and work boots.
“Be aware of the circumstances you are putting yourself in and don’t create a situation where you may be in danger,” Detective Doherty added.
As a general PSA to everyone involved: please, please for the love of God be careful. Anyone with any information is also encouraged to ring Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or the Crime Stoppers website.
