A man with meat under his clothes has threatened to stab a security guard at Corio Central Shopping Centre, police have alleged.

Investigators have posted security camera images of the man to social media with a call for public help to identify him.

Police said the guard challenged the unknown suspect in the shopping centre’s supermarket after observing him with “meat items” concealed under his clothes between 6.30pm and 6.45pm on 18 April.

In response the man produced scissors and threatened to stab the guard before “leaving (the) area”.

The wanted man was aged around 30 to 35, police said.

“The male pictured was in the store at the time and is requested to contact police as he may be able to assist the investigation.”

Police asked anyone with information to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, quoting incident reference number 180137404.
