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.

What’s Your opinion?

Fast work by the police….more likely a bit of good luck.

You’ve been watching Deliverance to often….

I reckon he probably did a burn out at midnight and woke these poor chaps up and so they have taken the law into their own hands.

or maybe not…

Excellent work by the Police by the way.

I smell drug connections in this.

Presumably Harriot and Lovering had some interest in Blatchford…if it’s fit to print, can anyone tell us what and why?

If they had abducted a nineteen year old woman they would have both have been released on strict bail conditions, including a $1500 bond.’

This is the ACT judiciary were talking about, remember ?

I tend to agree… why would they pluck someone randomly..thats doesn’t make much sense at all

This is all a bit strange. Perhaps there is more to this than we are being told. I would suggest that if they had abducted a nineteen year old woman that they would not be out on bail, and certainly not for a measley grand. What exactly is the deal with this?

Witnesses, who followed through ! These days it seems that witnesses are often too scared to go to the police because they realise how screwed up the law system actually is (i.e “Lovering and Harriott did not enter pleas and both were released on strict bail conditions, including a $1000 bond”).

Good on the witnesses for having the guts to help someone out.

And may the kidnappers rot in hell. (unfortunately they’ll probably be let off with a punishment of pathetic proportion).

Sounds like a scene out of pulp fiction….

Maelinar 12:18 pm 10 Jan 06

I have one word to say;

“Deliverance”.

Thumper 12:09 pm 10 Jan 06

They got bail…

Unbelievable…

I love this bit:

‘Lovering and Harriott did not enter pleas and both were released on strict bail conditions, including a $1000 bond.’

they were probably back at home before the cops had finished writing their reports.

It wasn’t some Summernats fans trying to abduct SGS was it?
