Mugged in Disney Court

By 15 April 2012 9

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery which occurred early this morning (Sunday, April 15) in Belconnen.

Around 12.37am a 24-year-old man arrived at his home in Disney Court Belconnen after finishing work. As the man parked in his driveway he was approached by three men. The man had a brief conversation with the group before one of the men produced a knife and made threats towards the victim and demanded cash.

The victim complied with the demand, and handed the man a sum of cash. The group of men also took some of the victim’s motorcycle gear before running off towards College Street in Belconnen.

All three male offenders are described as being Caucasian in appearance and around 16-years-of-age with slim to medium builds. One of the offenders was wearing a grey coloured hooded jumper, tracksuit pants and runners.

Another of the offenders was described as wearing a grey or black cardigan, jeans and casual shoes.

Acting Duty Superintendent Daryl Neit said it’s important to remember your safety in situations such as this.

“Don’t try and be a hero. No amount of money or your possessions is worth risking your safety for,” Acting Superintendent Neit said.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity around Disney Court or College Street Belconnen early this morning to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

We have a Disney Court? That’s awesome! Getting mugged, however, is less so.

Disney Court? Is Mickey Mouse the judge? Sounds like a lot of other courts in this country.

Hipsters are mugging people now, apparently.

This must have been terrifying for the victim, and I shouldn’t make a joke… But:

‘Another of the offenders was described as wearing…casual shoes.’

In my day, muggers wore spats.

Now that the red van has closed there is nothing keeping them off the streets.

I’m waiting for the return of the ripple soled boots

As soon as i saw this all i could think was could there have been a mucical score that this event could have gone along to?

Victim(thinking to themselves):

It means no worries
For the rest of your days
It’s my problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!

(Change in musical score to denote something bad is happening to the protanonist.)
(Sung to the tune of “A whole new world”)

Mugger: I can show you my knife
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, your money, your life
You must now decide.

Victim: This is new in my world
A not so fantastic point of view
I scream out no
With no where to go
I hope i’m only dreaming

Thats all i’ve got, it was starting to get silly and i havent had coffee yet.

Well I think it’s disgraceful to be making a joke out of all this; Disney Court used to be the happiest place on Earth, but now… oh, wait…
