Gungahlin home invasion attempt

By johnboy - 7 February 2011 22

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an attempted forced home entry in Gungahlin last night (Sunday, February 6).

Around 9.50pm, a Gungahlin couple were confronted at their front door by two males carrying what appeared to be a firearm and a large knife. The males attempted to force their way into the house, but were pushed out by the couple.

The weapons were not used on the victims during the incident; however the offender carrying the firearm struck the male victim with a single punch to the cheek.

The male offender with the firearm was described as Caucasian, aged in his early 20s, approximately 180cm (5’11”) tall, with a thin build, short blond hair and was wearing a grey coloured hooded jumper.

The second male offender was described as having an Asiatic/Islander appearance, aged in his early 20s, approximately 174 – 178cm (5’8”-5’10”) tall, with a thin build and was wearing a black hooded jumper.

Police ask anyone who was at in the area at that time and may have heard anything or seen people matching the description to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I recall a case in Melbourne from the 90’s where a property owner annoyed by repeated burglar activity at a property of his, prepared a night-time ambush and shot one or two intruders with a rifle – I do not recall it was his home, maybe an empty house for rent or a business premises. Can not recall if anyone died or if he ever did time. I recall he was in court.

Yes, that’s it mate, I remember now it was an empty house that he was renovating or selling or something. It was definately a .303 because I remember seeing the footage of the cops taking it from the house. He killed both intruders from memory.

So Stevi-anne #14, no need for me to head off to Der Stormfront after all……bunch of amateurs anyway!
