Mean streets of Erindale strike again

johnboy 5 December 2011 5

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an assault at the Erindale shops on Saturday morning (December 3).

Around 5.30am, the 30-year-old male victim was sitting in his car outside the Lucky Price Asian grocery in Garside Street, Wanniassa, when he was approached by an unknown man. The man opened the door of the victim’s car and dragged him outside. The man began to punch the victim about the head and body before hitting him in the head with an object, believed to be a stick or baseball bat.

The victim eventually managed to get into his car and drove to The Canberra Hospital where he sought treatment for his injuries.

The offender is described as being Caucasian in appearance, approximately 183cm (6 foot) tall with a medium build. He has brown hair and was wearing a black baseball cap.

Anyone who was in Garside Street at the Erindale shops around 5.30am on Saturday (December 3) and may have witnessed the assault, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on Information can be provided anonymously.

Does anyone else think this seems a little sus?

Guy sitting in his car in a (assuming) fairly deserted carpark at 5 in the morning, this other guy just happens to show up, drag him out of his car, bash him, didn’t attempt to steal the car or (i’m assuming by the media release) attempt to steal his wallet/phone/ipod/cigarettes/shoes/etc, then leave as quickly as he came. Oh and the description is also of the most generic white male possible.

Something else to this maybe?

Clearly you are not suitable for a job with the ACT policing media section then…

I get pretty angry too at the Erindale shops but I don’t know what they could be fighting about. There should be plenty of car parks at 5 in the morning.

Poor guy. Hope the police round up this human excrement swiftly!
