A hero emerges in Kaleen thanks to police video, but his dog wasn’t much use

By johnboy - 28 August 2012 74

Following on from this morning’s report of a brutal robbery at the Kaleen Caltex ACT Policing has trialled a new system to let us have the video from the event.

And isn’t it just a cracker? The dog walker taking charge like a boss is priceless and the pratfalls of the thuggish thief will live long in the memory.

Now having enjoyed that let us remember this bit from the earlier release:

Anyone who may have been in the vicinity of the Caltex service station in Kaleen on Friday night and witnessed the aggravated robbery, or knows someone matching the above description is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Haha incredible when the moron eats the pavement. Good on the dog walker. Would have been even nicer if his dog ate the dudes face.

Locked doors dont do much when they have acomplises holding it open.

In a way it helps that he bludgeons the poor counter jockey, just to remove any shred of sympathy you might have for the turd.

I assume the first dude was a part of it, holding open the door and all? He didn’t seem that interested in getting involved once dog man started up.

What a disgusting thing to say, JB. Society is clearly to blame for this poor unfortunate fellow. I hear that Meredith Hunter has a huge hug for the culprit when he is found. Did I say culprit? I meant ‘victim of society’.

I liked the way door dude needed to clear a stone from both his shoes having cocked up the timing. But he really lost interest in proceedings when it went sour didn’t he?

I am sure his ‘mate’ appreciated his support. though I am glad for the sake of Dogwalker, the accompice stayed out of it.

JB, is there any chance you could dub the video with the Benny Hill theme music, and speed it up? I’m fairly certain that it would be awesome.

I can imagine it now: (dog walker, door dude)
DW: “what the F**K is going on here?”
DD: “umm… dunno, just hanging out”
DW: “oh motherf…”
DD: “umm…. oh look the place is being robbed, didn’t notice that”

I think the shoes episode was an all clear single. They must watch a lot of movies involving robberies.

It looked to me like he actually pointed at his partner in crime as if he was saying to the dog walker “dude, that guy’s robbing the store!!” to which the walker seemed to respond “well, why aren’t you stopping it!?”

I have to wonder why this servo doesn’t have a locked in counter with those steel cables separating worker from customer / thief. Especially if it’s already been hit a couple of times before.

Sorry for the poor worker, but it was pleasing to see at least one of the cowards cop a quick couple of smacks before face-planting the concrete. I for one hope they keep releasing these vids, especially if it helps nab a few more dirt-bags.

Dog Walking Man clearly has balls of steel. What a legend.

… meanwhile, why hasn’t someone overdubbed Yackety Sax onto the last part of the video yet?

The dog walker’s a legend. Have the two fools been identified? The first bloke is clearly visible, and the actual robber doesn’t appear to be wearing any gloves. I hope the poor bloke that works there is okay.

What an incredible act of bravery on behalf of the dog walker. Imagine walking alone in to a servo being violently held up by 2 guys with nothing but a dog leash to defend yourself.

He was so fortunate that the door guy was completely gutless and did nothing to aid his accomplice. Imagine what the outcome might have been if door guy had been armed with a knife and had actually tried to do something.
