Dermot O’Toole, 64, was murdered on 12 July at his jewellery store in Hastings, on the Mornington Peninsula, after intervening to protect his wife who had confronted a knife-wielding robber.

As previously reported by Jeweller, 26-year-old Gavin Perry of Crib Point has since been charged with murder, armed robbery and intentionally causing serious injury.

According to reports, the man in the newly-released image was not considered a suspect, but police would like to speak with him in relation to the incident. He is believed to have been at the jewellery store at about 5pm – the approximate time that the event took place. 

The man in the photograph is wearing a bicycle helmet and maroon t-shirt.

He, or anyone who may know his identity, has been asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
