Wanniassa pizza mugger

By 8 February 2013 8

ACT Policing is investigating the robbery of a pizza delivery driver in Wanniassa last night (Thursday, 7 February).

About 9.30pm a pizza delivery driver was in his car in Byrne Street, Wanniassa when a man appeared in front of him holding a 30cm knife to his stomach demanding money.

The pizza delivery man handed over a small amount of money and a number of Hot Cell pizza boxes. The offender then fled on foot along a bike path adjacent to Byrne Street, Wanniassa.

The offender is described as around 22 years of age, 170cm (5’7”) tall and Caucasian in appearance. He was wearing a black balaclava or cloth over his face.

No one was injured during the aggravated robbery.

Police are urging anyone with information which can assist in identifying the man, or anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in Wanniassa last night to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

*CRASH!*
“Someone called for a grammar pedant? Seppuku is the infliction of wounds on oneself through disembowelment, AKA a form of suicide. If a person were threatening Seppuku in Wanniassa, onlookers shouldn’t have concern for their own safety, although it’d be an awful sight.
My work here is done.”

Seppuku by proxy?

You speak of it as if it was an action of a human.

It looks more like that a feral snarled at the poor driver to drop it some crumbs.

This sentence is a marvel of ambiguity:

‘About 9.30pm a pizza delivery driver was in his car in Byrne Street, Wanniassa when a man appeared in front of him holding a 30cm knife to his stomach demanding money.’

It can be read as a threatened suicide, or as an attack on the driver. It’s only from the rest of the information that it is possible to glean that the latter is the correct interpretation.

Awful experience for the driver.

Wow you totally went the opposite direction to where I expected you to go. I was thinking someone would pull me up on the reference to a bushido ritual being performed by a ninja.

Instead you went totally the other way and didn’t even notice my attempt to make a joke about a guy appearing out of nowhere and holding a knife to his own stomach. Oh well, I tried.

I don’t mean to be pedant, but is this a grammar problem? Cross-cultural linguistic interpretation problems maybe, but surely this is not a grammar problem. If Overlord had said “An Ninja appeared…” for example then we might have need of your services, but I really think you could have directed your powers more profitably in other areas. Consider the lack of an apostrophe in the first word of the second sentence….:-)
