Alleged abduction on the mean streets of Dickson

By johnboy 9 January 2006 28

WIN have news on an alleged attempted abduction at gunpoint in Dickson last night.

Witnesses claim the pair threatened the teenager with a knife and a firearm before forcing him into a vehicle at the Dickson shops and driving away.

Police located the suspect vehicle at a house in Flynn a short time later.

Thirty-five year-old Wayne Harriott and 34 year old Jamie Lovering have been charged with forcible confinement and assault.

Sounds like fast work by the police.

UPDATED: The SMH has a lot more here.

police including the Territory Investigation Group and the Specialist Response and Security team quickly cordoned off the area.

One of the offenders was seen attempting to drive away from the area a short time later with Mr Blatchford.

The car was stopped by police and Mr Blatchford was freed.

Research, don’t rehash trash

We don’t force you to read it.

Shame on you for posting this piece and on the police reporter who issued its release, as the victim in this case is a thirteen year old girl and the story should have been supressed. Why some fabricated fantasy has been printed in place of the facts is beyond comprehension (perpetuating a false reality of ‘justice’ or police competence, I think). And shame on all you ignorant people who comment about things they know nothing about. *** *** [ED – Name suppressed to avoid a defamation suit courtesy of a mad looney] is a sexual predator who preys on underage girls and who, for some unexplained reason, these ‘wonderfully hard working’ police have yet to charge or punish him for his crimes(even though both lovering and harriot faced court and wore their punishment). Research, don’t rehash trash. Disappointing stuff.

Tactical police are trained in such matters and are on call 24/7. No jurisdiction in this nation has a dedicated kidnap response team

vg, there is a team of police on call 24/7, but is there a dedicated kidnapping response team active 24/7 ?

I think he was thanking me for my comments about him and his colleagues. VG and I have been both allies and nemisis at various times, but that that doesn’t mean I don’t respect the fact he and his ilk are out on the street so I can sleep at night.

Thanking LG for being called ‘a bit of a tosser’?
Ah, ’tis the season of goodwill. And kidnappings.

“would pretty much require a dedicated team of police to be on call at the time of the incident “

They are, 24/7

And thank you LG
