Kambah Home Invasion

By Die Lefty Scum 16 August 2008 37

I live across the road from a home  on Boddington Crescent Kambah which suffered an invasion at 2am this morning.

The cops said there “was a victim” and that the (newly moved in) occupants of the house are “well known to police”. Furthermore, the perpetrator was obviously “looking for something” according to the blue meanies.

There has been no less than 5 cop cars outside the house since this morning, so one can only assume it is fairly serious.

Anyone privy to the details? I wanna know if I should be looking for a new ‘hood.

What’s Your opinion?

Ah. I used to hang out with your brother after school sometimes! Small world.

Yep, that was us.

I could be wrong, but did you live just past the little shop at the top of on Tillyard Dr?

Yep, I would have been in the same class before heading off to yr 7 at Marist. Any idea who his teacher was in Yr 6? I had Ms Morris (previously known as Ms Chin). Or can you give me any other names?

He only went to Year 4 at St Thomas, and then started in Year 5 at Daramalan – not sure who his teachers were, because I didn’t start there until just after he left. I don’t know if he’d want me mentioning his name…. but our mother worked there as a secretary at the time, and our surname is the same as a well-known Australian river, if that gives you any clues.

Sounds like you would have been in the same year as my brother – he was in 4th Grade at St Thomas in ’77 and then moved to Daramalan.

Dorkus – in what year did you leave St Thomas? I left 6th grade there in ’79!

I left after 1st Grade, at the end of ’79. Sounds like you would have been in the same year as my brother – he was in 4th Grade at St Thomas in ’77 and then moved to Daramalan.

the penny will drop soon. Fairly sure i know you. but will have to think some more on it…

So much for anonymity! 😉 If it helps the penny to drop, I finished year 10 in 1989, lived in Scullin and went to Ginninderra College briefly in 1990. Left college after about 3 months and got a job instead.

so, did you hang around with the same friends as her, m gilbert being one i remember particularly well. (he went out with her)

I was a part of the group that lived across the oval. mainly saw SFX girls at the mall – we all worked there.

Not a lot. I think she was friends with my brother before me. I don’t really recall any of her other friends. If I still had my year books I’m sure I could pick out some faces, but they all went missing in a house move.

Where in the mall did you work?

V8… sorry to hijack your thread!!

ah, the best job of all….

I was a trolley pusher. sat around in the mall a lot, and collected trolleys when needed.

I’m another Charnwood to Kambah refugee (St Thomas Aquinas 1978-79, for the record). Having spent 23 years in Charnwood and the past four in Kambah, I think the worst thing I’ve seen in either suburb was a bunch of drunk guys outside the Kambah Inn one Saturday afternoon trying to bludge smokes off passersby.

I must have led a sheltered existence, but I’m okay with that.

lucky you. I wish that was the worst I have seen. or experienced first hand.

the worst i have ever seen was a guy thrown into one of the windows at the bin. we grabbed him pretty quickly, but he almost landed his neck on a big jagged edge *shudder*, we bundled him off to the hospital. The cops at the time couldn’t believe how lucky he was…
