Mugged on College Street

By 28 April 2013 50

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery that occurred in Belconnen yesterday (Saturday, 27 April).

At around 8.30pm a 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman were walking along College Street returning to their residence in Belconnen.

They were approached by three males, one of the males produced a knife and demanded the pair hand over their wallets and other items.

After they complied with his demands the men ran off in the direction of the Belconnen Mall.

The three males are described as African in appearance and over six feet tall. One male was described as wearing a white checkered shirt, dark tracksuit pants with a white stripe and white canvas shoes.

Police conducted a full search of the surrounding area but were unable to locate the offenders.

Police are urging anyone with information which can assist in identifying the men or may have witnessed the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the website act.crimestoppers.com.au.

And what does the government propose to do to stop the gang violence in Belconnen?

More speed cameras?

Hmm i suspect the source will be MIA.Even though Le Dinh was murdered in College St in 2010 the level of crime in the Northbourne flats area that i’ve been aware of over the decades has been significantly higher than what’s occurred in College St.So CGN i’ll raise ya the flats and call your bluff on College st :)

If we adopted the Indonesian method for dealing with drugs, the problem would quickly right itself

What? You saw some 6ft Africans around and just assume that was them? Are you for real? If the AFP were after red heads , I see them all the time….and they can be real dodgy too. They are not too hard to find either…..

Genius! No wait, that’s not the word I’m looking for… Moronic! That’s what I meant :)

DrKoresh9:26 pm, 28 Apr 13

Especially considering drugs weren’t mentions anywhere in the report. If only you’d said we should take the approach to violent crime the same way Indonesians do to drugs then I might have agreed with you.

There are a metric buttload of govvie flats, town house and scummy houses on and all around college street. I would say go for a wander at night but I like both you guys. Give it a hit with google earth maybe? Or just do a drive by of college street and its off shoots next time in belco.

If that were true then Indonesia would have no drug problem. Since we know how they deal with their drug problem, that is clearly not the case. Therefore your statement is logically invalid

Going by the ACT Police Crime Stats page, the Jan – March period had one reported robbery in the Belco town centre as opposed to 5 for the Braddon region. Your argument is therefore invalid.
http://www.police.act.gov.au/crime-and-safety/crime-statistics.aspx

I live in one of the town houses not far from college st, it is in fact a very quiet area. Almost all of my street are APS with some very quiet Asian uni students. Rents and house prices in that area are quite high, which keeps out much of the proletariat. There are some dodgy residents in the Illawarra flats, but they generally keep to themselves and many of the flats are unoccupied.

I walk/run after dark every night around central belco and have never felt unsafe.

There are entire cul de sacs of human trash in that entire area. High rents mean nothing to government housing. So sorry, you are incorrect, bud.

Unlike the rest of Canberra, where there are no pockets of destitution? Like Red Hill? oh, sorry, the Red Hill Flats; Umm, Narrabundah? No.. Kingston? Damn that Causeway Ainslie? no…

The fact that you once drove your Prius through down a street and saw a poor person doesn’t make it a low SES, high crime suburb.

Making a lot of false allegations of what I said there bro, my single comment was that college street and surrounding area is much worse that northebourne flats. That is, far higher levels of human trash.

I’m sorry mate, but you’ve clearly been sheltered if you don’t see that young male Sudanese/”Black” crime is becoming more common in Canberra (NOT PROPAGANDA, USE GOOGLE), you can peg someone as a racist or whatever you want, but try being attacked by multiple black gentlemen walking home by your self late at night, try confronting an 18 yr old 6 foot tall Sudanese male run screaming at you swinging because hes 2 bottles of rum and half a gram of ice down and doesn’t give a f#%k if he goes to jail or kills you or whatever the outcome may be… you might start viewing the world a little differently, just because you see everyone as ‘equals’, doesn’t mean everyone is.

I’m not promoting racism, But you’re PC bullsh*t helps noone.

Thinking back to my cabbie days i agree that there were just as many low life criminals and junkies that resided in and around College St. as there were in the Northbourne flats but i reckon Burnie Court took the cake.Most cabbies avoided the place like the plague at night and i for one was glad to see it razed.

Officers were spotted chatting to 2 tall, African gentlemen on Eastern Valley Way not longer after this. They then sped off with lights flashing somewhere towards the lake.

Wow, the Sudanese immigration experiment really has been an unmitigated disaster. And before all of you PC freaks blow up, have a read of the belconnen crime reports posted on RA and tell me they aren’t overrepresented to the max.

Also, I used to work around all of these trash. I cannot legally speak of it but the white trash criminals far out number any other races.
