A look inside the HP Experience Centre in Melbourne
Victorian police are currently on the hunt for a man after he stabbed a HP Experience Centre store manager in Collins St, Melbourne on June 1.
According to an article in The Age, 35-year old HP service centre manager, Ronald Maskell, was stabbed in the shoulder.
Victorian police said Maskell was opening up the store on Collins Street at about 8.40am, and briefly left room and returned to find an unknown man inside the store, looking through a bag.
Maskell attempted to apprehend the man and he was then stabbed in the upper body and fled the scene.
Maskell was then transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
HP spokesperson, Luke Cuell, said it was working closely with the police investigation and that the number one concern was for Maskell's wellbeing.
"While we are not aware of security reports, the wellbeing of staff is a primary concern and we are looking into the situation," Cuell said.
Victorian police have released CCTV footage and describe the wanted man as being in his late 20s, about 180cm tall with a tan complexion.
Anyone with information is being asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or can submit a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
Maskell has been the store manager, since the Experience Centre was opened in March 2015.
