A hero emerges in Duffy

By johnboy - 18 November 2012 63

Members of the public intervened to detain a suspect in the early hours of this morning, which led to ACT Policing arresting and charging a 15-year-old boy for aggravated burglary.

An 18-year-old man had been with a group of friends in Duffy, waiting for a lift from his father around 12.50am today (Sunday, November 18) when another group of young people, including one with a red bandanna tied across his face, were seen to walk across the carpark toward the Duffy shops.

The man left with his father and friends but concerned about the suspicious behaviour they had witnessed, drove back to the Duffy shops a short time later to see the same group of people running from the shops, and two youths climbing from a hole smashed in the glass shopfront of one store.

The 18-year-old man gave chase on foot across the nearby oval, and tackled one of the offenders to the ground. The 15-year-old alleged offender was then detained while police were called.

The young person, from South Canberra, was charged with aggravated burglary and will face the ACT Childrens Court tomorrow (Monday, November 19). Police are urging any witnesses who may have information about the burglary at the Duffy shops, or may be able to identify other co-offenders, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the website at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information may be provided anonymously.

Top work by the 18yo, community minded and athletic…should signed up by Brumbies/Raiders/GWS/Federal Police or political party of his choice.

Except the Greens… they’d probably argue that the 18 year old abused the human rights of the 15 year old.

Notorious fact, your honour. Meets the judicial notice requirement.
