Axe wielding mugger in Belconnen

By johnboy - 6 September 2011 36

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery in Belconnen last night (Monday, September 5).

Around 10.30pm, a 24-year-old man was talking on his mobile phone while standing next to his vehicle on Hennessy Street in Belconnen. While on the phone he was approached by a man who demanded cash.

The victim initially refused to give any cash to the man, until the man produced a small axe.

The victim handed over money and his mobile phone to the man, who was last seen running along Hennessy Street towards College Street.

The victim was not injured during the aggravated robbery.

The man is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged between 20 to 30 years old, approximately 183cm (6’) tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a dark coloured hoodie jumper, navy tracksuits pants and a black baseball cap.

Police are appealing for anyone who was near Hennessey Street in Belconnen around 10.30pm last night, or may have seen a man matching the above description to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

At the risk of being sucked into the bowels of the earth, things thrown at me from left, right, center and above. I believe all elicit drugs should be legalised . 1) It would cut the crime rate to posabely less than 0.1%, 2) The criminal element in this industry would cease to exist, 3) Law enforcement can get on with real policing for the community. 4) My house and car won’t get broken into any more (well not for Drug purposes). Ducking for Cover.

Ever since they legalised alcohol, crime has plummetted!

In the US where it was illegal? Certainly brought an end to alcohol funded organised crime.

I read this and living in Belconnen the word “Nash” comes to mind, anyone remember that word?

Pray do tell…..

I will tell 3PNB, The “Nash’s” were a pair of twins who would get up to all sorts of no good in Belconnen. I remember that one was walking around Emu Ridge on day many many years ago with a small axe trying to be tough, needless to say he got Nashbashed and i still have the axe to this day.

The whole thing just screams “Nash” to me.

I was having this conversation last night actually. I was wondering if the legal status effects usage to any extent at all? I’ve never known anyone to not use drugs simply because they were illegal. Every person I’ve known just said they weren’t interested in it, legal or not. “Want a hit of this? No thanks, the law says that’s not allowed”, never heard it. And subsequently, legalising it (like with Amsterdam) didn’t produce any more users. Like if they legalised Herion tomorrow, wont make a difference to me cause there’s no way in hell I’ll touch that sh!t!!

I have a feeling that it’s the seen do be doing something at the expense of billions which has little to no effect other than making non-users feel good. I doubt if any users have ever worried about it being legal (in regards to it’s use), more that the illegal status just makes it go underground.

Uh oh, thread derail…

/me cheers.

I thoroughly agree. The main problem with illegal drugs is their illegality. Alcohol used to be illegal in the US, bringing about a golden age for organised crime. Marijuana, cocaine and opium used to be legal and the world didn’t end.

Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it.

Seriously who are these people?

Drug addicts ?

I’m sure you meant to say; ,i>” people with substance abuse issues through no fault of their own due to poor parenting and social deprivation, who have poor interpersonal skills, and mental health issues, and who need guidance, mentoring and counselling and a social worker to manage their benefits claims and housing issues.”

Not all people with ‘mental health issues’ turn out to be felons Ben.

Seriously who are these people? How do you roam the streets with an axe on the happenstace that you’ll find someone to wield it at? But we all know, if caught, he’ll have been abused and neglected and the beak will slap his wrist and send him on his axe wielding way.
