Northern Territory Police are calling for witnesses in relation to a robbery at a shopping centre in Casuarina on Saturday.
At around 10:40am, an 85-year-old man was in the entrance to a supermarket on Bradshaw Terrace when he was assaulted and robbed by a man unknown to him.
The victim received minor injuries.
The offender is believed to have fled via the northern entrance of the shop.
