Indecent act on the William Slim Drive bike path

By johnboy - 9 January 2013 38

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an act of indecency in McKellar last night (Tuesday, January 8).

Around 8.50pm, a woman was cycling along the bike path adjacent to William Slim Drive when her bike was hit from behind by a male cyclist. She fell to the ground and was dragged into nearby grassland by a man.

A male cyclist riding along the path heard the struggle and stopped to provide assistance to the woman. She was taken to Calvary Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during the incident.

The man was last seen riding towards Belconnen on a dark-coloured BMX style bike. He is described as being between 183-190cm (6’ – 6’3”) tall with a solid build.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the incident, or anyone who saw a man matching the description above riding around the Lake Ginninderra area on a dark-coloured BMX style bike last night to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the website www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

It’s nice to know that someone will speak up for rapist scum.

Even nicer to know that someone is a complete moron.

bit lost here …………???

Given some other things he’s written here, I assumed MG was being facetious, and JB appears to have thought likewise. If that’s not the case, then I fully concur with MG’s post.

This would be the first time in history he has defended a woman in a case like this. Normally he is all about blaming the victim or saying the victimis a liar.

Clearly he was trying to be sarcastic in his first post.

Well done to the third cyclist who stopped to help the woman.

Totally agree. It would have taken no small amount of courage I reckon when he could have kept on riding with no one the wiser. Kudos!

cycling along the bike path adjacent to William Slim Drive

Those are lovely cycling tracks away from the road and along the shoreline of the lake.

But 8:50pm? The place is also perfect for ferals to prey on defenceless victims in the dark, as this incident shows.

Some of these places, including Glebe Park in the city, should have signs to the effect of:

WARNING: PERVS ABOUT.
DO NOT PASS THROUGH AFTER DARK.

If you think such sign is ridiculous then check out Japan (okay, admit that it is slightly wackier than other countries).

Well done to the third cyclist who stopped to help the woman.

Who did it? Can’t see anything above your post to warrant it…

FLAMIN’ MONGREL, HANG HIM AND ALL THAT!!!!!

So f***ing gross Gillespie. I actually wondered where you had been lately and wished you would come back for the lol but just now I remember you can be the most disgusting pos on this site.

Oh sorry, I thought I was saying what most people thought about such a mongrel hiding in the bushes who’d attack a complete stranger out of the blue like that.

Yeah, real f!!!ing gross.

Mr Gillespie 2:49 pm 09 Jan 13

Yeah, the scum needs to be hung, drawn and quartered.

Was going to make a smart-arse comment about cyclists, but decided this isn’t the thread to do it.

I hope that the woman makes a quick and complete recovery, and good on the following male cyclist for stopping and providing assistance.
