ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an assault which occurred in Conder early yesterday morning (January 13).
Around 12:30am a 23-year-old male security guard was responding to an alarm at the Charles Conder Primary School on Tom Roberts Avenue when he was approached by four men.
After refusing the men access to the school, the security officer was assaulted by one of the men. He then managed to evade his attackers and get into his car to call for help from his vehicle radio. It is believed that at this point, one of the men threw a rock at the security vehicle, smashing a window.
The first offender is described as aged in his early 20s, about 175cm (5’9″) tall, with a stocky build. He was wearing a white baggy T-shirt and black track-suit pants with a white stripe down the side. He had a tattoo on his forearm in old English style script. His hair was brown with blond tips and cut short on the sides.
