Indecent act on the William Slim Drive bike path

By 9 January 2013 38

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an act of indecency in McKellar last night (Tuesday, January 8).

Around 8.50pm, a woman was cycling along the bike path adjacent to William Slim Drive when her bike was hit from behind by a male cyclist. She fell to the ground and was dragged into nearby grassland by a man.

A male cyclist riding along the path heard the struggle and stopped to provide assistance to the woman. She was taken to Calvary Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during the incident.

The man was last seen riding towards Belconnen on a dark-coloured BMX style bike. He is described as being between 183-190cm (6’ – 6’3”) tall with a solid build.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the incident, or anyone who saw a man matching the description above riding around the Lake Ginninderra area on a dark-coloured BMX style bike last night to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the website www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Was going to make a smart-arse comment about cyclists, but decided this isn’t the thread to do it.

I hope that the woman makes a quick and complete recovery, and good on the following male cyclist for stopping and providing assistance.

It’s nice to know that someone will speak up for rapist scum.

Even nicer to know that someone is a complete moron.

Oh sorry, I thought I was saying what most people thought about such a mongrel hiding in the bushes who’d attack a complete stranger out of the blue like that.

Yeah, real f!!!ing gross.

Who did it? Can’t see anything above your post to warrant it…

Well done to the third cyclist who stopped to help the woman.

cycling along the bike path adjacent to William Slim Drive

Those are lovely cycling tracks away from the road and along the shoreline of the lake.

But 8:50pm? The place is also perfect for ferals to prey on defenceless victims in the dark, as this incident shows.

Some of these places, including Glebe Park in the city, should have signs to the effect of:

WARNING: PERVS ABOUT.
DO NOT PASS THROUGH AFTER DARK.

If you think such sign is ridiculous then check out Japan (okay, admit that it is slightly wackier than other countries).

Given some other things he’s written here, I assumed MG was being facetious, and JB appears to have thought likewise. If that’s not the case, then I fully concur with MG’s post.

Totally agree. It would have taken no small amount of courage I reckon when he could have kept on riding with no one the wiser. Kudos!

This would be the first time in history he has defended a woman in a case like this. Normally he is all about blaming the victim or saying the victimis a liar.

Clearly he was trying to be sarcastic in his first post.

Blimey…I thought acts of indecency were normally along the lines of an old bloke flashing his todger at a bunch of schoolgirls, not knocking a woman off a bike and dragging her into a bush? Isn’t that assault and attempted rape?

So basically only crime and pedos have a right to be out after dark when it’s cooler in Summer.

Check.

That stretch of bike path that passes under Ginninderra drive and along the lake has seen these type of sordid activities before, in the last two years there has been at least two to three incidents of females riders jumped from the grassland that verges on the edge of the lake..Its relatively difficult to see from either William Slim or Ginninderra drive.

You’d think so.

I can’t believe people are saying things like “why was she out at 8:50pm”.. infuriating, victim blaming mentality. A person should be able to ride a bike at any time of the night without being attacked. I walk my dogs there often and I am not back by 9pm, should I be raped or attacked now, I guess I deserve it!

On Tuesday night after work I left where I was at 10.45 pm and got home at 11.25 pm. I ride home regularly late at night and won’t stop doing it. But i have lights you can see from mars and have a pretty good “looks dodgy” radar. I have had one serious incident in about 30 years. Blame the mongrel who did it, not the victim for being there.

Totally agree. This attack is in no way the fault of the victim. It doesn’t matter what time it was, what she was wearing, if she was pretty or not. The fact is she was sexually assaulted by a vicious predator when she should have been riding safely home.

Yeah, they throw around all sorts of colourful terms to refer to some OUTRAGEOUS act, usually of a (SHOCK—HORROR!) sexual nature. “Indecent” act. “Indecent” assault. “Sexual” assault. It’s not “rape” anymore.

Whatever happened to calling a spade a spade?

That’s funny, the anti-Gillespie trolls here thought I drove a Commodore, when I spoke out about speed cameras.

So now you think I am one of the bike-riders who ride on roads where cars drive?

Anti-Gillespie trolls, get a grip!

OK TEAM AGT, bring it in tight and listen up. We have to stick to the game plan on this one, because I think he has rumbled us. Comic and Gamer Nerd – you organise some Ant-Gillespie screen shots. Pork Hunt, you need to comment on everything. Everything. How Canberran – you keep shaking that tagline. C’mon guys – stick to the strengths in our Anti-Gillespie trolling. Now get out there!

A person has the right to walk down a busy street alone, after having a few drinks with friends, to head home to her husband that is but only a few hundred meters away, without being killed.

She never made it.

Your call.

You know, I’m trying to see anywhere above your post where someone has said “why was she out at 8:50pm”?

Ah they must have all been deleted, you maintain the rage.

I think it was in reference to #11
