Police allege a 33-year-old man was held against his will by two men, threatened with a knife and robbed of cash and his car keys in February.

A 39-year-old man was charged for his alleged role in the incident and remains before the courts.

As part of their inquiries, investigators have released CCTV vision of a man described as being of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern appearance, of a solid build, and with a black beard, who may be able to assist with their inquiries.

Police are also examining links to three aggravated break and enter incidents from a basement storage space in a unit complex at Wolli Creek last month in which 204 items of furniture were stolen by a group of men.

The haul included fridges, mattresses, lounges and dining tables used to furnish apartments for lease or sale.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or online.
