The victim was able to identify his alleged attacker, whom police located a short time later hiding inside a cupboard in a neighbouring house.

While searching for the male, police also located a number of items which had been stolen from the victim.

The 28-year-old man was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, burglary, resist arrest and make threats towards a Commonwealth Official.

What this story fails to mention it that he was caught hiding IN HIS OWN HOUSE! And you guys are forgetting about the stolen property that was recovered.
So this story is about a disturbed burglary by the neighbor.

What puzzles me is why more criminals aren’t caught almost instantly, given their evident stupidity.

I can’t recall ever hearing about a criminal being caught where I’ve thought “What bad luck for that genius to be caught like that!”

They really are the dregs of society.

The smart ones run super funds.

Sounds like a lovers tiff to me!

Assault occassioning actual bodily harm equates to a lovers tiff? how 19th century of you.

Okay then…………….a lovers quarrel?

Quarrel does not generally involve actual bodily harm.

If they were lovers, it would be domestic violence. Words like quarrel and tiff downplay a very serious issue.

I think you’ll find that I have never down-played any assaults, serious or not. So, let’s call it a serious ‘lovers’ quarrel.

That’s all I’ve got.

At the risk of being argumentative, by calling it a quarrel or a tiff you have played down an assault.

Maybe old bean was having a constitutional, ended up really, really anaebriated and thought to himself:

“Yae though i walk in the shadow of the valley of death i will fear no evil for am the hardest bastard in the street.”

And like any good 19th century chap he went straight home to discipline the spouse to his satisfaction.

After doing this he realised he was in the wrong house so he disembaked post haste.
