Lunchtime robbery near Woden Tradies’ Carpark\ Health\ IP Australia\ CASA Building, witnesses sought

By Skidbladnir - 18 March 2008 4

From the ACT Policing Media Release (Yes, I know the font is different, but someone reading may know something):

ACT Policing is urging the public to help identify the occupants of a white-coloured sedan that fled a Phillip carpark after robbing a man about 12.30am today (Tuesday, March 18).

The man was walking through the Furzer Street carpark in Phillip when the vehicle approached him from behind. The two male occupants of the vehicle asked the victim for a cigarette before exiting the vehicle and assaulting him.
During the assault, the offenders demanded the victim’s wallet and watch before taking his mobile phone and fleeing in the vehicle.
The victim was treated at the scene by ACT Ambulance officers for minor injuries.

The first offender is described as 20-25 years of age, 178cm (5’10”) tall, olive to dark complexion, of slim build with shaved, dark-coloured hair.
The second offender is described as early 20s, 168cm (5’6″) tall, Caucasian in appearance with shoulder-length, curly dark-coloured hair.

The vehicle is described as a white-coloured sedan, possibly an early 1990s model Ford.
The victim is assisting police with facefit composites of the two offenders.

Police would urge anyone who may know the identity of the offenders or may have seen a white-coloured sedan – possibly a Ford – in the Phillip area around the time of the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Bah.

I got caught out by Policing’s inconsistencies…
Sometimes they use 0030 and 1330hrs, other times they use AM.

Erm, 12:30am is just after midnight. This makes more sense.
