The security guard was struck by a line of shopping trolleys, and was taken to hospital with injuries to his back and side.

The women then left through the damaged door and jumped into the car and it was last seen driving towards Wembley Road.

Investigations are continuing.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
