Mugged after leaving Mooseheads at 5am

By 26 January 2012 12

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to the robbery and assault of a man in Civic earlier this morning (Thursday, January 26).

About midday police were on foot patrol and located the man lying in some bushes in the laneway behind the Canberra Theatre.

The man has what appears to be minor injuries and was missing his wallet and keys. He has been taken by ACT Ambulance Service to The Canberra Hospital for assessment.

Initial enquiries have revealed the man left Mooseheads between 5 and 5.30am, walking to the back of Pitts Street car park near the Canberra Theatre. The man’s movements from here on are unknown.

Anyone who may have been in the area between 5am and 6am and seen suspicious activity or may be able to assist police with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

This is weird. If I understand the timing correctly, assuming he was attacked around 6am, that means he would’ve been lying there for 6 hours until he was found around noon, but he only has minor injuries so you’d have to assume he wasn’t knocked unconscious.

So was he tied up, or was he simply so pissed that he was passed out for the whole time?

Guy loses keys and wallet in bug night out. Passes our in bushes. Police mistake male ritual for suspected assault. Tax payer dollars wasted. Canberra residents afraid to walk streets at night. Exaggerated headline brings more website traffic . Nothing to see here.

Pitts Street car park? Some people in Sydney reckon Pitt St is a car park all the time.

Can the AFP media team get it right?!

That car park is known as The Pits. From the mid 60′s, when it was the meeting place of the local modified car fraternity. Usually used in conjunctionn with Skid Row, or otherwise East Row.

I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and say it was your comment that was stupid and not necessarily you. The guy was assaulted/robbed. This would be ascertained by talking to the victim, not by assuming it had happened. That’s kooky talk. Hope that clears things up.

The way it reads to me is the guy cant remember what happened after leaving the pub, so it is assumed the guy was robbed. Thats kooky too.

What you should do is post up your email address, so then the AFP can come to you so you can show them how to correctly investigate everything, and to get your permission to investigate criminal matters.

If you read the first line; “ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to the robbery and assault of a man in Civic earlier this morning (Thursday, January 26).”

That would state that the person has suggested that he had been assaulted or robbed or both, they have then said his movements after leaving Mooseheads is unknown, which would be very likely, he walks out drunks, remembers getting the shit kicked out of him, but does not know where or when.

If he had not reported that he was assaulted, he would have been treated the same as every other drunk they find, see if anyone can look after them, if not a bed in the watch house until sober.
